HOLIDAY FUN IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER
WITH KIDS IN THE PARK AUTUMN SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM AT SYDNEY OLYMPIC PARK

The fun doesn’t stop when Easter does this autumn school holiday period, thanks to Kids in the Park autumn 2018 catering for all your post-chocolate fun! There is just so much to love about this time of year, especially at Sydney Olympic Park. From Circus Solarus’ A Very Birdy Journey for the little ones and Circus Arts for older children to Space Racing for Kids, The Amazing Chase bike race and so much more, the excitement will continue at Olympic Park long after the Easter bunny's left town.

The Kids in the Park autumn program, from April 14 - 29 (inclusive) has something for everyone with activities to suit all tastes, ages and budgets including FREE, NEW and great-value, affordable options.

The Writing Workshop is a highlight the autumn program with seven seperate workshops at Bicentennical Park directed by Dr Bernard Cohen, an Australian award-winning author including the title-holder of 2015 Russell Prize for Humour Writing. Each workshop offers rewarding and unforgettable experiences including Write Your Own Book, New Worlds, Future Stories, Future Inventions, Animal Tales, Skilled Young Writers and Rhetoric and Persuasion.

The Writing Workshop program – of which kids can book for one or more workshops – is designed to help build confidence, develop creativity, improve literacy and of course, have lots of fun. Running as part of Kids in the Park for the twelfth year now, Bernard Cohen's The Writing Workshop program is a popular at Olympic Park among kids of all ages.

“The Writing Workshop’s goal is to make writing fun. We help children use their imaginations to get their ideas onto the page in new and creative ways. They build skills and learn new techniques and ways of thinking, and it’s all underpinned by real enjoyment. We laugh a lot!” Dr Bernard Cohen says.

Sydney Olympic Park is once again offering stacks of FREE post-Easter activities. Kids aged 5- 12 years can also take part in a Heritage Hunt at Newington Armory, or those of all ages are welcome to honour Australian atheletes at The Path of Champions.
