Winter School Holidays

Monday 4 July to Friday 15 July 2022

School holidays offer a break from the routine and demands of school. They also give families a chance to spend time together doing things they enjoy.

During July we can look forward to slowing down the pace a little and embracing the cooler weather. As Sir Ranulph Fiennes says; “there is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing”. So let’s get out there with the kids and explore our beautiful region.

On the flip side, working parents can find school holidays challenging, stressful and expensive!

To help families juggle the conflicting demands during the holiday period, we recently put a shout-out for all the awesome things that can help fill the Winter holidays throughout the Greater Port Macquarie and surrounding regions.

Be sure to also check out our holiday programs and what’s on for more school holiday inspiration.
