The KRANK School Holiday Program is returning to its usual format for these school holidays. The program offers free and low-cost activities for Logan residents aged 5 to 17 years of age.
City Lifestyle Committee Chair, Councillor Laurie Koranski said the return of the KRANK school holiday program was another step forward in the city’s recovery from the effects of the pandemic. KRANK was suspended for the last two school holidays but Council has been able to kickstart the program again by introducing enhanced safety and social distancing measures.
The program will run from Saturday 19 September to Sunday 4 October with activities including outdoor sports and games, craft, creative activities, cooking and more.
All previous KRANK Holiday programs have received positive reviews from both the children and parents, so it is definitely worth having your children attend them!
If coming in person is an issue, an Activity Kit is the solution. The Kit comes with all the materials that are needed, along with a link to an online video and an instructional tip sheet that you can follow along. There is a limited number of printed KRANK activity booklets available from libraries and customer services centres; however, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the electronic copy.
Unfortunately, due to the circumstances, some activities have been changed. Team Gymnastics (5 to 11 years) have been cancelled. A few go-karting dates have changed and the jumping castle and super slide are unavailable. Participants will instead receive four go-kart races instead of three for the same price.
Bookings are open now and an online activity guide is available for each day.
You can also become a provider of these holiday activities! The next round of applications will open in November and will be for the July 2021 to June 2022 program. To be eligible, evidence of current Blue Cards, current first aid and CPR qualifications, relevant qualifications for your activity (if required) and a $20m public liability insurance will need to be provided.
Benefits of becoming a provider include funding to cover the cost of your activity, travel subsidy for eligible applications, reimbursement of a part of your venue hire and promotion of your activity!
