Connect4Good
January School Holiday Program 2020


5 great programs!

 

Kids Giving Back offers Connect4Good full and half day holiday programs for children 8-14 years of age that provide a range of experiences for children and young people to undertake activities that will assist our most vulnerable members of the community.

All children and young people participating in our Connect4Good program become part of the Kids Giving Back team. Our programs are hard work – lots of activity and a lot of new information is learnt. Our “team members” spend the entire day giving back to others through undertaking activities that will assist vulnerable members of the community.

We encourage participants to bring plenty of snacks (nut free). Some programs have lunch provided but participants can bring lunch if they have dietary preferences as we are not able to cater for specific food requirements.

We ask that all children and young people wear closed in shoes for health and safety and their hair is tied back if participating in a cooking experience day.

For intergenerational events we respectfully request all children be vaccinated for MMR ( or advise us if not) and not experiencing any symptoms of an illness when they attend. This is to minimise risk to our elderly friends who often have vulnerable health.
