Whilst schools wind down for another term, the City of Kalamunda has been gearing up for another two weeks of holiday madness. A jam-packed program of fun and excitement awaits, with everything from science to soccer.

Mayor John Giardina said, “The City of Kalamunda is passionate about connectedness and creating community spirit. These school holiday programs are the perfect way to get both parents and kids out and about, having fun, making new friends and being a part of their community.”

Crowd favourite, the Kids Cooking Club, is back at the High Wycombe Community and Recreation Centre from Thursday 27 September at $27.30 per child per session. The award-winning program teaches kids aged five to 12 how to prepare healthy foods, follow simple recipes and learn the kitchen basics. Four sessions are available, each with a different meal on the menu.

The junior dance and soccer programs are perfect for getting those hearts racing. Soccer runs on 4 October, with the five to eight year olds kicking off from 9am. Nine to 12 year olds will get underway from 10.45am, at a cost of $12.45 per child per session.

Junior dance is a fun-loving workout and is suitable for ages five to 12 - no experience required. Sessions run for an hour each on 27 September and 1 October from 9.30am. Spots can be secured for $8.30 a child.

Skateboarding WA are heading down to High Wycombe Skate Park at Fleming Reserve on 25 September at 10am to host their popular Learn to Skateboard Clinic. This session is free to all ages and abilities, and skateboarding WA will provide all participants with skateboards, helmets and wrist guards.

Those that prefer the BMX bike or scooter can join in the free Skate, Scooter and BMX Clinics. Clinics will run at Kalamunda Slate Park on 2 October from 1pm and Forrestfield Skate Park at 4pm. The sessions are open to all ages and abilities and skateboarders are also welcome.

The Bibbulmun Track Bush Walk offers something a little more relaxing and is suitable for youth aged 12 to 18. It’s the perfect chance to get away from the screen and into nature, whilst connecting with new people. The walk is scheduled for 10am to 1pm on 26 September.

If you have a young creative at home, why not get them involved in The Big Draw International Drawing Festival. The City has partnered with Hawaiian’s Forrestfield to deliver four drawing workshops across two days, starting on 3 October for ages eight to 12 and finishing up on 4 October for ages 12 to 17. Workshops start at 10am and 1pm on both days, and run for two hours. 

Fascinate your four to 12 year olds with the Libraries’ range of science sessions. They’ll have the chance to explore the slimy, bubbly and gassy materials that make up our world in Very Strange Stuff at Lesmurdie Library on 27 September from 10.30am.

To discover the amazing secrets of electricity, heat and explosive energy, sign your young ones up for Science Alive at the Forrestfield Library on 28 September. Class starts at 10.30am.
