School Holiday Activities

School Holiday Activities

Hi Families,

School Holidays are almost here!

I know many of you are looking for a break from all the screen-based activities that have been forced upon us because of physical distancing restrictions. However, in lieu of Going Bananas, for those that may be looking for some fun, biblical based at-home holiday activities, here are a few ideas …

  • St Alfred’s Blackburn North also usually runs a Going Bananas program, for Primary School kids, in the mid-year school holidays. This year they are going online, 6-10 July.
  • For creative kids, in Grade 4 – Year 8, Scripture Union have adapted their Performing Arts Camp to be online, 8-11 July.
  • VBS (Vacation Bible School) is a big thing in the USA during their mid-year holidays. Go Curriculum has developed a 3-day online program that you can use whenever it fits into your holiday plans. Watch Day-2 of their Backyard Bolt to see how it works. Note: Some of their outside activities might need adapting to our colder climate at this time of year, or just factor in a hot shower to warm up afterwards!

If you know of other church based holiday activities that others may enjoy, post in our Meeting Place or Parents’ Facebook groups, or email
