Happy New Year!

January 1, 2022 in News

We cannot believe it’s the new year already, but we’re sure that everyone is looking forward to a really exciting year ahead. 

And, to kick off the new year with a bang, we have compiled a list of some fantastic events and activities to enjoy with the whole family, and keep the little ones busy during the school holidays.

We hope you enjoy our wrap up for the month. 

Berwick Building Blocks

Where: Federation University, Berwick Campus 100 Clyde Road, Berwick
When: 5th – 12th January
Time: Various Times
Cost: Free

Calling all mini engineers, future designers and junior construction workers! 

Join others at Berwick Building Blocks for a free interactive session, where other children aged 3 – 7 can dress up and learn about what goes into large scale building projects, by using blocks of their own to create a rail bridge and replication of the Clyde Road underpass. 

During each 45 minute session, there will be other activities that will see the kids make their own rock planters that they can take home and work through activity books focused on the design of the new underpass, environmental impacts and safety. 

A perfect educational school holiday activity for the kids to enjoy.
