Junior Programs

Term 2 2022 Junior Programs

Important: Due to the vast number of public holidays on Mondays in Term 2 2022, a decision has been made for the following: 

  • No Monday session will run on 25th April due to ANZAC day
  • Monday sessions WILL run on all the other public holidays
  • If you miss out on Monday sessions on the long weekend due to pre-booked holidays or plans, you are welcome to attend another session (Wed or Sat) for that week only.
