Things to do July 8-14, 2022
For the first week of the winter school holidays, we have a NAIDOC colour fun run and family day, a Mypo junior disco and an event by Headspace and the Station.
As we continue to celebrate NAIDOC Week, the last week of term two is also upon us, and the timing could not be more perfect.
The kids can hit the ground running these school holidays with the NAIDOC Week colour fun run and family fun day at Sturt Reserve.
Fortunately, they will have an opportunity to warm up for the big day at the Mypo Junior disco this Saturday night, with two hours of non-stop music, games and competitions.
Schools Ministry Group will host a trivia night on Saturday, while Headspace and The Station will host their joint NAIDOC Week youth event next Thursday.
Sounds like an action-packed week!
