School holidays are back again and Bundaberg Regional Council has a range of activities planned to help keep the kids busy.
With Council a proud member of the Reef Guardian Council Program, there are virtual education sessions on offer to provide an understanding of marine life and the reef.
Assistant Director Strategic Engagement, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority Rebecca Allen said the sessions provided school holiday fun and the chance to educate the next generation on how to care for the reef.
“Learning about the reef helps inspire people to care for the reef, it creates a sense of awe and connection which is particularly true with children who then help share this with their parents, schools and communities,” Rebecca said.
“The sessions allow us to partner with our Reef Guardian Councils as key land managers who are taking actions to help the resilience of the reef and worked with them to provide these virtual learning sessions to the catchment community through council venues.
“Attendees will hear from marine experts from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority as they discuss, with the aid of recorded video and images, the Great Barrier Reef and coral reef ecosystems.”
The sessions are part of the Reef Guardian Councils program which includes 19 local governments across the reef catchment.
Free movie highlight of school holiday fun
There is a free movie on at the Moncrieff for the entire family to enjoy, as well as a number of interactive craft sessions at the three libraries within the region including Easter basket making and bedazzling an Easter card.
There are also activities ranging from outdoor scavenger hunts to activity booklets available at the Botanic Gardens.
