School holiday fun awaits

Parents beware, the school holidays are nearly here again. The North Shore Community Centre is coming to the rescue again with another great program of low cost activities.

Centre manager, Shannon Embery, said she knows what a struggle it can be for parents to find low cost fun things for the kids to do over the holidays.

“We’re really proud to provide activities at just $5.00 each for the kids of our area. The program will be offered to kids ages 5-12 and it all starts 18 September, running through to 29 September. Our activities include dance classes, karate for kids, acro yoga and arts and crafts. All skill levels are welcome and at the end of the day, it’s about the kids having fun and enjoying their holidays. Our Facebook page has all the details. Bookings are recommended to book now as spaces are limited,” Shannon said.

In what will be a busy time, Shannon said she marvels at the ways locals continue to support the community facility.

Shannon was also keen to mention the support of the centre’s ongoing sponsors, the Marcoola Community Bank® branch.

“We have a great relationship with Kerryn Vincart and her team at the Marcoola Community Bank® branch. We value the important partnership we have with our local branch,” Shannon said.

Branch manager, Kerryn, shares the same message.

“Our branch exists because the people of the North Shore said they wanted their own bank. Now, through the support locals continue to give us, we’re able to give back in the form of donations just like the ones to the North Shore Community Centre.
