Today we will be making PIZZA from scratch! So bring your muscles for some good kneading of that dough and add your choice of the available toppings!!
Bring your favourite board game from home too, and let’s see who will win at Cluedo, Legendary or Chess, or will you bring something that we can learn?

Wednesday 20th April: Recycling craft ANZAC theme

Recycling ANZAC Theme craft today. We would like to remember our fallen heroes and those who continue to serve us faithfully today to bring us this freedom we enjoy in Aotearoa. We plan to use recyclable materials to make our own creations inspired by the categories (to be announced on the day). Please bring any clean usable reusables with you to help us make a memorable display. There will be prizes for each category … so get your thinking cap on!

Today we will need our water bottles and grip socks with lots of energy and bring your strategy and your speed as we head into Lasertag. We will be providing a fish/hotdog and chip lunch then heading to the scooter park at the Esplanade for an afternoon of zooming around in the fresh air. Bring your scooters, skateboards or rollerskates to join in the fun. (No bikes please).
Onsite we will be doing papercraft - you choose what to make from the resources we have available, at the end of the day we can arrange our creations on the wall display in a mural collage.

Friday 22nd April: ANZAC themed Dress up and Activity Day

ANZAC Dress up Day. Today come as an ANZAC soldier, a war nurse, or someone in your family who may have served overseas. Alternatively come as a poppy, an anzac biscuit or a bugle player. We plan to make ANZAC biscuits, an ASK ANZAC wreath and share stories and photos from history. If you have any you would like to share please bring them along. They will be looked after and returned to you safely. We may even write an Ode (poem) to the ANZAC's, so bring fresh ideas and come contribute in our original poetic endeavours.
