Sport, craft and films are just some of the activities Mid West and Gascoyne shires are putting on to help keep children occupied in the autumn school break.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the line-up of programs in Geraldton would be entertaining.

“I am delighted to introduce the latest School Holiday Program, which offers kids a fantastic variety of activities from sports, arts and more,” he said.

“It’s great to see local community providers unite to put a jam-packed fortnight of quality entertainment together for kids of all ages.”

School resumes on Monday, April 30.
