Awesome Autumn Holiday Programme

The team at Manukau Leisure Services has put together an exciting range of fun activities to keep youngsters entertained for the April school holidays.

Swimming, costume making, sports, tenpin bowling and treasure hunts are just some of the exciting activities on offer at recreation centres throughout the city for five to 14-year-olds. There’s even a Hogwarts Day at Otara Leisure Centre! Combine this with visits to the Auckland Museum, the Star Dome, the zoo and the airport, and your kids will be well and truly occupied from 21 April until 2 May.

Manukau on the Move’s Team Extreme programme has a host of outdoor, action-packed pursuits for 12 to 16-year-olds from 28 April to 2 May. From kayaking and mountain biking to King of Hill and an x-treme day, there is something to appeal to even the most energetic teen. But get in quick – places are limited.

For more information on school holiday activities including times and costs contact your local leisure centre.
