School Holidays

Council is committed to providing children and families in the Liverpool area with things to see and do that promote creativity, learning and play.

Many of our school holiday activities allow children and teenagers to get creative through arts and crafts, music, dance and more. Other activities, such as yoga, basketball and skateboarding workshops, promote the importance of keeping young people healthy and active.

Each school holiday period, we proudly host a number of events and workshops across our venues and our great outdoor spaces.

Visit our What's On page to find out what's happening in the Liverpool area throughout the year.

Liverpool City Council is closely following information provided by the NSW and Australian Governments about novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and so in-person events are limited.

However, there is a rich array of online activities to enjoy, plus basketball clinics and our playgrounds are open to enjoy.

Please visit this webpage for up-to-date information about the status of Council's events and services.

Spark your imagination and creativity through fun, affordable hands-on school holiday activities as part of the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre digital program, including comic creation, Claymation and other video workshops.

Because social distancing regulations are still strictly in place, in order to keep the community safe, CPAC has also moved this year’s WOW Festival online, offering a broad range of activities covering theatre, art, Storytime sessions and even dance.

Should you wish to visit, CPAC's galleries are open - just remember to observe social distancing and hygiene requirements.

And of course the Casula Parklands adventure playground and Sculpture Walk are also open.

WOW Festival At Home

From 15 July
Suitable for ages up to 12

Head to the Casula Powerhouse website to download the Creative Pack and get stuck in to a broad range of activities you can enjoy at home.

It’s suitable for all ages up to 12 and among the projects on offer are slime making, learning improvisation using ordinary objects as props, colouring-in, a gallery tour and much more.

The Creative Pack has been designed to guide parents and guardians through the materials their young artists will need, how to work alongside their child and also discuss the activities being completed to help everyone make the most of them.

Because social distancing regulations are still strictly in place, in order to keep the community safe there are no in-person school  holiday activities. However, since the COVID-19 restrictions were put in place, Liverpool City Library has been running fun online activities for kids.
