Wow. Term 1 is almost done, and it’s time to organise a few activities for the kids, to ensure they don’t indulge in too much ‘screen time’ over the Easter break. Here are some suggestions for fun local activities!
Bop till you Drop run Performing Arts Workshops that are designed for children aged 5-12years. These programs are educational with professional teachers who will gently encourage and teach your child new skills in DANCING, SINGING, ACTING, plus craft, cooking and science to break up the action packed day.
There are 6 classes per day, each class runs for 45 minutes. This program is aimed at building self-esteem in your child. We allow them to be part of the creative process rather than dictating our ideas. This helps build their self-confidence and makes them feel proud of their achievements. The children will perform in a concert on the last day to show off their new talents and they will also be awarded a graduation certificate. The concert is an important part to building confidence and their public speaking skills. Also we want them to walk away with a big sense of satisfaction knowing they worked towards something and accomplished it.
