Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 25 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 26, 2008 41 STEPPING OUT www.innerwestweekly.com.au School holiday boredom busters Alan Darwiche, 12, tries his hand at activities at The Armory, Newington. KIDS can hop, skip and jump down to Sydney Olympic Park in the school holidays to fight off winter boredom, make new friends and have some fun. By joining in the Kids in the Park school holiday program, kids of all ages can go on adventures, play sport and get creative. Leah Tasker, from the Sydney Olympic Park Authority, said there was a wide range of activities to get children out of the house. ''A lot of our activities are outdoors and the aim is to get them active and moving, whether it's their mind or their bodies,'' she said. ''It gets them away from the television and the PlayStation and into the fresh air.'' Programs on offer can run for one hour to five days and there's a variety of activities, clinics and workshops for all budgets. WIth all the sporting facilities at Sydney Olympic Park there are plenty of clinics available, including an AFL junior clinic with the Swans, tennis, archery, bmx, golf, skateboarding, diving and trampolining clinics. Those searching for an adventure should go in The Amazing Chase where children set off on their bikes to solve puzzles at checkpoints. Crack The Code is another adventure costing $5 where children navigate around the park using a compass to collect clues and win prizes. Children who want to have some fun can journey back in time and experience Games That Children Played, playing games their parents used to play, including marbles, jacks and hula hoops. Youngsters with a creative side can participate in a drawing sports workshop, make cookies and craft, or learn about the habitats of the endangered green and golden bell frogs. The activities will be on all holidays and bookings are advised. For more information visit www.kidsinthepark.com.au or phone 9714 7888.
