Waiheke Library – School Holiday Programme

Hi everyone,

We’re getting ready at Waiheke Library for an awesome “Grossology” April school holiday programme, and we look forward to seeing you there! See below for details, no bookings required, just turn up on the day.

  • Turn Yucky into Yummy!
  • Wednesday 21st April 2pm – 3:30pm

This is a collaboration with the Waiheke Resources Trust. This fun composting workshop will look at how adding worms to yucky kitchen waste creates rich compost enabling you to grow your own yummy vegetables!

  • Disgusting Science!
  • Tuesday 27 April 2pm – 3:30pm

This is one of our popular science circuits, focusing this time on the science behind digestion and other wonderfully gross and fascinating aspects of life on earth.

  • Zombie Zone
  • Thursday 29 April 2pm – 3:30pm

This is an invitation to enter the Zombie Zone to create realistic and disgusting zombie wounds, do some zombie face painting and play zombie games.

  • Makerspace
  • This will still take place on Sundays 18 April and 2 May at 10:30am – 12 noon. This library will be closed on the middle Sunday, 25th April, for ANZAC Day.

Makerspace is an opportunity to get creative tinkering, making and building, and is aimed at ages 5-13.

You can also view our event listings on our Facebook page @waihekelibrary.

Throughout the holidays we will also have activities that you can do anytime you come into the library – including a scavenger hunt, and these holidays we will also be developing activity packs which can be taken home or used in the library.

 So we’re getting ready at the library to explore the the yucky, gross and grotesque with Grossology these holidays, and we look forward to seeing you there.

Ngā mihi,
