April Adventures: Animal Encounters, Career Day, and Mermaid Magic!

Students had a great time in a range of activities in the second week of April Vacation Care. On Monday, they had a few unusual animal visitors from Animal Anonymous, namely two pythons, a bird, a possum, a baby-size kangaroo, and two lizards. They were invited to pat the animals and even holding them if they felt brave and safe to do so. On Tuesday, they came to OSHC dressed up like a professional of their preference. Everyone played an important role in the community, such as firefighters, vets, doctors, scientists, hairdressers and so on. On Wednesday, students all had fun riding their scooters or bikes around the tracks or being the traffic light or traffic control police. On Friday, they went to the Futures Theatre watching the Little Mermaid on stage and then had some time at the local playground. Apart from that, some of them participated in a mermaid craft in that afternoon. Overall, students enjoyed the wide variety of activities offered in this vacation care.
