Cooking up a vacation-care storm
VARIETY is the spice of life and for some of the youngsters taking part in the Tweed Shire Vacation Care program, spice is exactly what they have been adding to some of their activities.
This week, children at Murwillumbah East Primary School explored the mysteries of Indian cooking, discovering a host of new ingredients which goes to make this a very tasty and challenging style of food.
The cooking classes certainly got everyone involved and was a great way of exposing the budding chefs to a new culture.
This is just one of many activities being offered during the program.
Other activities which have been keeping the participants busy have included trips to the movies, craft, games and excursions.
The program is currently running at Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads South.
Parents can have peace of mind as children take part in activities in centres at Murwillumbah East or South Tweed Primary Schools.
Activities these holidays include tenpin bowling, a trip to Macadamia Castle, country fair day, movies, pool days and sports.
