School Holiday Program

BRAC delivers an activity-based program during School Holiday periods.

BRAC provides two four-hour sessions per day, with structured activities -

  • Session One: 8.00am -12.00pm;
  • Session Two: 12.30pm – 4.30pm.

Drop off is strictly, 8.00am or 12.30pm.

Strictly 6 -12 year old's only.

BRAC loves our School Holiday Program and we are constantly looking at opportunities to make it more diverse and fun for local kids!

However, after a review of recent programs, it has been determined that the age limit for participation will resort back to 6-12 year olds.

We have previously trialled welcoming five-year-olds to take part, but have found that the disparity between the oldest and youngest children is too much.

With the July school holidays only a few weeks away, participation will revert back to 6-12 year olds.

Participants attending the program will be expected to participate in the structured activity.

If they do not want to participate, parents will be contacted to come and collect their child. Each session will have a half-hour break where participants can have some food and drink.

Participants can be enrolled in both sessions and will have a supervised lunch break from 12.00pm – 12.30pm.

What to bring;

  • Enclosed comfortable shoes, most activities involve running around on hard ground.
  • Hat.
  • Sunscreen.
  • Bathers.
  • Recess and afternoon tea. Each session includes a 30 minute break.
  • Lunch if attending both sessions.
  • Food can be ordered from a set menu at the BRAC kiosk. This needs to be completed by a parent or guardian at the time of sign in.
