School holiday program

About the program

The school holiday program is designed for primary school-aged students to participate with their relatives and friends. Each hands-on activity has been planned in accordance with the K–6 NSW syllabus outcomes so that there is a clear link between the school holiday program and Sydney Metro's Fast-tracking the Future education program.
