Friday 21 December 2018

Are you keen to get out of the house and learn something new these school holidays?

Mount Alexander Shire Council is offering free activities for young people to have fun and help build skills as part of the Mondo Lounge holiday program.

There are seven activities available including a two-day barista course, beginners skateboarding workshops, baking session, pool party, movie screening and skate park excursion.

“With such a long summer break our holiday program offers the perfect chance to hang out with friends and do something different,” said Jodie Hearn, Youth Activities Officer, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“We’ve mixed it up these holidays and are offering something for everyone,” said Jodie.

“Our barista courses are always very popular so make sure you sign up straight away as places are limited.

“We’re also trying a few new activities where you’ll learn t-shirt printing and an afternoon cooling off at the pool. It’s going to be lots of fun and we’re keen to see as many people as possible get involved. So help to spread the word and tell your friends and family!”
