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 FastTracking the Future education program.

School holidays 2020

Sydney Metro’s free school holiday activities are now available for you to download.

This term, we’ve adapted our STEM activities to allow parents and students to direct their own school holiday program at home. For each activity, there is a step-by-step guide and templates for primary-aged students to try a new skill and learn more about Sydney Metro. We recommend at least two or three hours for each activity.

What people are saying

“I am really impressed with the program, the facilitators and just the fact that Sydney Metro have developed the materials. The way the material was contextualised worked really well for kids in the age range. Working together in teams gave kids a real world glimpse into how programmers really work together. Well done!!”
