School holiday activities a historical hit!

Posted on 25th January 2019

Popular family venue, the Jondaryan Woolshed opened the doors to Flagstone Creek Public Hall and welcomed 121 children to their school holiday activity program in January.

Running for 12-days, Jondaryan Woolshed General Manager, Rebecca Pope says the affordable activities received positive praise from parents who were looking to keep kids under the age of 15 years busy.

“For a gold coin donation, we provided local families with free art and craft activities, a scavenger hunt, old-time games and access to our animal nursery and historical village,” said Ms Pope.

The morning damper making class was a big hit, with families contributing a small fee to learn the art of baking the traditional Aussie dish. Topped with butter and golden syrup, participating children enjoyed feasting on their fruits of their labour.

Volunteers from the Jondaryan Model Engineers and Live Steamers Inc.were also keen to be a part of the school holiday fun, putting on their train driver’s cap to supervise mini train rides. At just $2 per ride, the bi-weekly activity was well attended, and funds raised will support the ongoing maintenance of the historical trains and mini-rail area.

“We are fortunate to have a wonderful team of staff and volunteers who enjoy sharing their knowledge and history of the Woolshed with young people.”

“It was thanks to their dedication and support, that our school holiday activity program was a big success,” said Ms Pope.

The Jondaryan Woolshed hopes to host another school holiday program in April and plans to release more information in the coming months.
