Children taste holiday fun
Tuesday, 27th September, 2011
The first day of the school holidays yesterday had children involved in a range of fun activities.
The PCYC started its holiday activities with the theme ‘Countries of the World’.
Each day children will learn about a different country and even get a chance to try out the cuisine.
There are still places available and the PCYC may be contacted on 8087 3723.
