Kids for Kids Market

Unfortunately the Beerwah CWA branch has had to postpone their kids markets planned for the upcoming school holidays on Saturday September 23 and they would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

From Saturday, Australia Zoo’s new meerkat mob will be perched and ready to meet guests! The mob of 10 cheeky female meerkats and their carefully designed new home are long-awaited additions to Australia Zoo’s African section, situated at the far end of the savannah where the large giraffe herd, zebras and rhinos roam together. The new exhibit itself is a carefully constructed meerkat heaven, replicating the sandy desert plains where they live in the wild. Meerkats are extremely busy and inquisitive animals. They’re ultra-alert, love to dig and are constantly re-arranging the objects in their home, much to their keeper’s interest and surprise each day. For people who love meerkats but can’t get to the zoo to visit these little beauties in person, Australia Zoo will also host a live streaming virtual reality camera in their new home, so you can check out the live streaming of the meerkat’s daily activities on the Australia Zoo website.

Vacation Care Fun at Glass House Early Education Centre This September school holidays Glass House Early Education Centre has a jam packed program of fun activities, local adventures and exciting excursions to keep school aged children happily entertained. The Centre staff are keen to develop programs that thoroughly engage the children. When creating their holiday schedule they work collaboratively with the children to find out what type of activities they would most enjoy, this feedback is used as the basis for the program. Week one kicks off on Monday September 18 with an ochre workshop by the talented assistant educator Reanna. Drawing upon her Indigenous background, children will be shown how to mix the ochre, paint and create their very own detailed artwork to display at home. On Tuesday, the children will be going on a ‘cooking adventure’ and the day will focus on creating a delicious dinner and dessert for their family to enjoy. Wednesday will involve learning new carpentry skills with a day of wood craft creation and fun.

On Thursday, the Centre bus will transport the children up to the beautiful Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve for a rainforest adventure that includes a walk through the stunning reserve, having a picnic lunch and enjoying fun activities. Friday September 22, will involve ‘mental gymnastics’ as the children will be out to beat the educators and flex their brainy muscles with a day of brain teasers, riddles and more! Week two will commence with a ‘messy games’ day on Monday – this is always a hugely popular holiday activity where the children love to get super messy so bring a change of clothes! Tuesday September 26 involves an exciting excursion to visit the Glasshouse Rural Fire Brigade where the children can hop into a real fire truck and check out all the equipment first hand. Wednesday is a ‘triple s’ day of fun with the Centre bus taking the children down to Skippy Park to enjoy scootering along the tracks followed by a yummy sausage sizzle lunch. Science is always a fascinating area of focus at Glass House Early Education Centre and

the schoolies will be heaps excited to making individual volcanos that will ‘erupt’ on Thursday September 28, as well as new and exciting science activities guaranteed to bring out the budding scientist in all the children. The week will wrap up with an end of holidays party and play day. Bookings are open now, so contact the Centre for more information. Some activities will incur an additional cost.

Community call out! Non-rusted old pots and pans, serving spoons and colanders would be much appreciated.

Also PVC pipe off cuts are really useful for craft projects!
