Pine Street’s holiday program for July 2015 is focused around the theme, The Now. We have engaged a wide range of traditional and contemporary technologies to engage and stimulate young minds to think about the world around them. Pine Street values the exploration of our visual language as it enables self- expression, intuition, imagination and the sharing of different meanings. Through the holiday program children will gain self-confidence and a sense of achievement as they explore their place in this modern world.

*All Programs this holiday run for a full day 9-5pm $70 per day.
