Lane Cove Spring School Holidays Activities 2020

Parents, you need a break! It’s hard work when the kids ar home 24/7 over school holidays; they really do need a lot of stimulation to keep them balanced and happy. During the Spring school holidays, most actives are back to normal (except for some extra cleaning and distancing rules) and a few local businesses have changed their business model to provide activities for kids remotely. Below is a list of local companies offering Sporty, Creative and Educational programs.

Kumon Lane Cove

At Kumon, we personalise each student’s program, right from the beginning. Students begin study at a level that allows them to build self-confidence from day one, and progress according to their ability rather than their age. Over time, our students develop the study habits, attitude and skills that will allow them to study advanced material confidently and independently.

Kumon has operated in Lane Cove for over 30 years, and is run by local mum (and ex-Kumon Student) Sheryl Lee. We are constantly adjusting our centre to ensure the safety of our students, staff and the local community. Families can study with us in person, online, or via correspondence – choose the system that suits your family best!

Find out more about the Kumon Method of Learning by watching our introductory video ( or booking an Orientation Meeting directly with Sheryl at [email protected].

Bop till you Drop Online

Bop till you Drop is a registered Covid19 Safe business. We have a Covid19 Safe plan from Service NSW as well as our own plan which can be viewed here. Due to popular demand we have decided to run these Performing Arts Programs these holidays. Our professional teachers have all completed their Covid19 training and their certificates will be displayed at the venue. We feel confident we can focus on teaching the children new skills in DANCING, SINGING, ACTING, as well as CRAFT, MAGIC & SCIENCE in a safe and hygienic atmosphere. We have modified all our classes to minimise the use of sharing. For example, every child will receive their own individual activity pack, pencils, paper, etc, instead of sharing with others. The children will also make their own microphones rather than sharing. We have replaced our cooking class with our BRAND-NEW MAGIC class. The children are going to love showing you all their new magic tricks. They will also be working towards a concert, which we will record and send you the link. We believe the concert is an important part to developing the children’s self-esteem.

Due to Covid19 restrictions we are limited on the number of children we can accept into the program, so please don’t wait too long as we would hate for you to miss out.

There are six classes per day and each class runs for 45 minutes. The program is aimed at building self-esteem in your child. We will be working towards an online performance, so you can witness their newfound skills.


When: Tues 6 & Wed 7 October
Time: 9.00 – 3.30 (extended hrs 8.00 – 5.00 optional extra)
Where: Sea Scout Hall, 347 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge
Suited for: 5-12 years
