The weeks are flying by and we are hurtling towards the school holidays faster than than you can say “two and a bit weeks to go!”
Stuck for things to do? The Kegworth Times is here for you with our school holiday guide – a whole series of stories featuring fun things to do.
First up! Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre (RALC)
RALC is only a short drive or bus ride from Leichhardt and is already popular with Kegworth Kids.
“I love Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre because there are loads of things to do – a wave machine, a big slide and a cafe that serves real coffee to keep my Dad happy,” says Grace, from year 4.
“It’s always warm – even when it’s cold outside.”
During the holidays the folks at RALC have put on a few extras to keep everyone entertained. Here’s what they told our reporters.
“The wave pool and giant slide operate daily throughout the school holidays, and you might also like to try out our new fun features: the rainbow water arches and tipping buckets,” said a spokesperson.
“The water temperature at the Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre is a pleasant 29°C all year round and you’ll never have problems with sunburn, sand in your cossie or bluebottles!” he added.
The centre also have an intensive Learn to Swim program. “Consecutive days of ‘Learn to Swim’ lessons rapidly develop skills and confidence in swimmers,” the spokesperson told the Kegworth Times.
“Specific skills programs for butterfly and breaststroke development, as well as the unique ‘Take Your Marks’ program (learning racing techniques for starts, turns and finishes) are also available.”
For further details go to the Holiday Intensive Program page.
As if that’s not enough, the RALC also have a range of sports camps. “If your kids enjoy basketball or netball, then sign them up to sports camps that are run by dedicated sporting organisations and will be held at RALC’s indoor stadium,” the spokesperson said.
“The camps will be run over consecutive days during the upcoming school holidays. For more information, visit our Stadium page.”
