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, many of which are free, at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, all Liverpool City Library branches and our great outdoor spaces.

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