SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMS OFFERED BY OTHER ORGANISATIONS

Families are often looking for interesting activities for the children during the school holidays.

The following list is designed to give you some ideas of places to investigate.

We have not investigated each of these and so we are not endorsing them or claiming that the program is necessarily suited to gifted youngsters.

Since all gifted children are different and have different interests and passions we have included a wide variety of things we think might be of interest to you.

We would be pleased to receive feedback about any you attend as we hope to keep adding to this page as a service to families during this and future school holidays.

Or if you know of other interesting programs on offer

Send us an email
