WIRAC holiday program promotes fun

CARLA Clayton is upbeat about the success of the holiday activity program at WIRAC during the recent school holidays.

The program co-ordinator said the WIRAC activities promoted fun and fitness for kids.

“We provided fruit for the participants at morning and afternoon teas,” Clayton said.

The program was held for one week before Christmas and two weeks before children went back to school.

She said she worked with the holiday activity program when she was a trainee. “It is now from 9am to 3pm which suits a lot of parents with work,” Clayton said.

“The aim is to provide entertainment for the children during holidays with fun and fitness.

“It was non-competitive.”

Clayton said the idea was to provide sporting opportunities which were not normally available in structured sport in Warwick.

Rock climbing, futsal, handball and water polo were some of the sports.

While most of the activities were in the dry courts area at WIRAC, the children enjoyed some time in the pools.

Clayton was delighted with the full attendance except for a few cancellations at the time of the flood in mid-January.

The program was cancelled the day the Condamine River reached its second highest level in 120 years in Warwick but resumed the next day.
