Not much longer to holidays!
04 Dec 2017

In Australia it is almost the end of the school year – and Christmas – and summer holidays.

Wow! Almost too much excitement!

The next couple of weeks are going to be very busy times for school kids - and teachers.

  • There are end of term activities - perhaps you are in a choir, band, orchestra or a stage production?
  • There are school projects to finish, end of year reports, parent-teacher meetings, finding out which class you will be in next year with which teacher and which other kids.
  • Maybe you will be going to several parties like a class party, sports team awards night, or other parties to celebrate the end of the year?
  • If your family celebrates Christmas you may be involved in church activities.
  • Your family may have a big get-together with presents and lots of food on Christmas day.

It’s a busy time for everyone, including your family. It can also be a stressful time for everyone involved. So, what can you do?

  • Make sure that you are all organised.
  • Talk to mum, dad or whoever cares for you about where you have to be, when and what you have to take.
  • Maybe get all the events down on the calendar - especially if you are not the only kid in your house.
  • Help to get the extra chores done around the house and garden.
  • Be aware that the adults may also be having a busy time getting ready for the holiday season and they may be involved in celebrations at work or with whatever activities they are involved in.
  • Get enough sleep so that you can enjoy all the fun!

There is lots to find out in the topic Holidays.
