School holiday activities announced

Central Coast Council has released its April school holidays program.

Several aquatic activities will run throughout the holidays at the Peninsula Leisure Centre.

Inflatables and waterslide sessions will be held at the pool from 10am to 11am and 1pm to 2pm between April 15 and 26.

These activities are included in the pool entry fee.

Parents are advised that children must be capable swimmers to partake in either the inflatable course or the waterslide as no floatation devices will be allowed on the equipment.

Parents are also advised that children should be under 100kgs to be in the inflatable course and taller than 1.1m to use the waterslide.

Swimming clinics will be held at the centre throughout the holidays, with a learn-to-swim program running suitable for ages three and up and a breaststroke and diving clinic also taking place.

Bookings for both clinics are essential and incur additional costs.

A squad camp session will take place at the centre from 8:30am on April 15.

The two-hour session will focus on developing swimmers' stroke and professional knowledge.

It is required that swimmers be able to complete 200m freestyle, 100m backstroke, 100m breaststroke and 50m butterfly swims and have a basic understanding of starts and turns.

Bookings are essential.

A beginners skateboarding clinic for girls will be held from 11am on April 15 at Umina Skate Park.

It is free to attend but places are limited and bookings are essential.

The Peninsula Leisure Centre will hold a jumping castle session for children aged two to 12 from 1pm to 3pm on April 16 and from 11am to 1pm on April 17 and 24. A charge applies.

Woy Woy Library will hold a superhero training and acrobatics show on April 18.

Hosted by a team from Action Reaction Entertainment, participants will learn some basic acrobatic skills and are encouraged to come dressed as their favourite superhero.

It will be suitable for ages four to 10, and bookings are essential.

A series of upcycle workshops will come to Umina Library on April 23.

Up first is a terrarium-making workshop which gets underway from 10am, followed by a bee and insect hotel making workshop at 12pm and concluding with an autumn leaf art session at 2pm.

Suitable for ages five to 12, the upcycle events are free but places are limited so bookings are essential.

Parents are advised that they must book for each individual upcycle workshop.

Council director Ms Julie Vaughan said the Council's school holiday program was fast becoming a popular resource for locals and visitors looking for activities to get involved in during the holidays.

"The program, available on line, is designed so you can easily identify activities suitable for your children, and register for them.

Central Coast mayor Cr Jane Smith said Council wanted to support local families to care for and entertain the children during the school holidays.

"We have options for families looking for full-day supervised activities right through to quick activities for just an hour or two," Cr Smith said.
