Pine Street’s holiday program for spring September 2015 is focused around the theme, Change. 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.

5- 8 years running Monday to Friday

13 – 17 years running Fridays 

*All Programs this holiday run for a full day 9am to – 5pm for busy working parents, but kids are ready to pickup from 4pm. Cost per day from July 2015 is $70.
