Holidays

Library not just for learning as school holidays spring to action

SCHOOL holidays are upon, and there’s plenty on around town to keep the whole family occupied as spring gets into full swing.

Wodonga Council has teamed up with the Wodonga Library and a number of other Border organisations to provide a variety of activities for all ages.

The Flying Fruit Fly Circus is swinging past the library on Tuesday, putting on a free performance and holding a come and try session afterwards.

The library is also holding Dancing Story, playgroups and other interactive activities for pre-school aged children.

“We see ourselves as being able to provide a welcoming space for the whole family, and kids are absolutely part of that,” Wodonga Library’s Meaghan Brown said.

“A lot of what we have planned is about being out and active, especially as we hard into spring.

“We have a great collection for borrowing, but we’re also about being a public space and our resources can take a lot of different forms.”

The library will also facilitate a ‘How to survive VCE’ session, which will be hosted by headspace Albury-Wodonga.

Centre manager Karina Kerr said it was important for students and families to learn strategies to deal with stress before study and exams kicked into top gear.

“We’ll examine what stress is, how to manage is, as well as recognising anxiety and knowing when it becomes an issue,” she said.

“It’s also good for families, parents and siblings of students in year 12 to know how to help students deal with that pressure as well.”

Details about the headspace session and other activities can be found on the Wodonga Council website.
