THEY may not be able to go on their typical excursions, but some special ideas have been coming to life at Leeton Out of School Care during the school holidays.
Big numbers have been turning out for the service across the last two weeks, with staff planning special days to ensure entertainment and education combine for all the different age groups.
Every day at the centre has come complete with its own theme - there's been craft and cooking, cupcake making, winter Olympics, an Italian Day, crazy hair and disco, a dramatic play event and talent quest.
Each of these events has been carefully thought out and planned by staff, according to Out of School Care co-ordinator Keira McCallum.
"We're still not going out as a big group like we usually would to different places, so we've had to come up with some new ideas," she said.
"Some of them we've used before, but not for some time.
"We've tried to have a good variety in there that caters to all of the different age groups we have here."
With the pandemic still in everyone's minds, the students have been practicing social distancing and regular hand washing each day.
They've also been enjoying spending time with their friends from other schools, while their parents are hard at work.
The service continues to prove why it is so crucial.
"We've had really good numbers," Ms McCallum said.
"The first week of the holidays we were getting huge numbers because it was the last week of the free childcare scheme, but even this week we've been so busy.
"Hopefully the kids have enjoyed themselves."
