Grow and discover these school holidays

Current location in the site

Over the two weeks of the October school holidays from 2–15 October, children can enjoy Selwyn District Libraries’ free Grow and Discover holiday programme, with multiple session times available across the district.

‘Grow your own Garden’ aims to show children how to use recycled material to grow flower, herb or vegetable gardens using recycled materials.

‘Star Wars, Star Ships and Space Stations’ uses Star Wars themed LEGO®. ‘Get TECHNIC®-al’ will use LEGO® TECHNIC® to either build a TECHNIC® pull back racer or work on a larger set. Both sessions are run by ‘House of Bricks’.

Paint and collage with ‘Spring into Craft’ to create beautiful blossom trees.

Bookings are required for these four free programme items.

‘Drop-in Discovery’ is an opportunity for different fun activities at Rolleston Library, including LEGO®, Duplo®, BeeBots and more! Unlike the other four sessions, bookings are not required for ‘Drop-in Discovery’, however spaces are limited.

Libraries also need help on a secret project that they would like to decorate with artwork! There will be templates available throughout the holidays for this secret ‘thing’...
