School Holiday Programs


Our programs provide experiences for children and young people to give back to others, by undertaking activities that will assist the most vulnerable members of our community.

All children and young people participating in our Connect4Good program become part of the Kids Giving Back team. They work hard – benefiting from engaging in lots of activities and learning a lot of new information.

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 that 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.
