What to do on school holidays in Townsville

TOWNSVILLE school students are counting down to this month’s school holidays and there are plenty of activities being offered by Townsville City Council to entertain all ages.

Commmunity and Cultural Development Committee chair Cr Colleen Doyle said the council had a long history of providing family activities in the school holidays.

“We know it’s difficult for parents to provide the entertainment for the entire two weeks,” she said. “The facilities that the community own are used to put on different activities that appeal to a wide range of our youth.”

A series of Lego events have been scheduled around the city that will give kids an opportunity to show their creative sides, inspired by the Brick by Brick Exhibition at the Flinders St library. Other activities include story-telling workshops, titled Ghost Jam, at Aitkenvale and Thuringowa libraries, and Art Escape workshops over the two weeks of the holidays at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery.

As the days warm up, swimming will also be a popular activity with the Rockpool, Strand Water Park and the council’s pools expected to be busy.
