Going to school during the holidays isn’t something you’d think children would be too enthusiastic about, but during the recent school holidays, Imanuela Akateamia was definitely one of the places to be.

The school held a holiday programme as a way of helping raise funds for several of their students who are scheduled to travel to Sydney later in the year to attend a Christian convention.

Teacher aide Di Senibiakula and her husband Pita supervised the youngsters, aged from 4-10, each day over the two and a half weeks the programme ran.

Di said they received plenty of positive feedback - not only from parents, but also from the children themselves.

“We had a lot of days where the parents would come and collect their kids and they would be asking, can we come back tomorrow?”

The senior students who are heading to Sydney, also helped to run the programme and Di said she was very proud of their approach with the younger ones.

“They were all very involved throughout all the activities, as well as helping to find things for all the students to take part in so everyone could be included.”

Both indoor and outdoor activities were part of the programme and there was everything from that simple old favourite, musical chairs and soccer games to quiet reading and dancing indoors.

Imanuela Akatemia principal Rebecca Aitchison-Gill said she only found out about the programme on the last day of Term 2, but was pleased that it had received a good reaction from the community.
