When and where is the program held?
The program will run for three days, from Monday 9 July through to 11 July at the Good Shepherd Anglican Church in Curtin. We will be using our church facilities, as well as those of our neighbouring church St James' Uniting. Depending on the weather, we also plan on utilising the park next to the church car-park for some activities.

Cost of program:
- 1 Child: $65 for one child to attend the whole program [3 days]
- 2 Children: $110 for two children from the same family to attend the whole program [3 days]
- 3 Children: $150 for three children from the same family to attend the whole program [3 days]
- 4 Children: $190 for four children from the same family to attend the whole program [3 days]

What are the start and finish times?
Kids can be dropped off from 8.45am each morning. Our program will commence at 9am. Parents will need to sign their kids in and out each day. Our program finishes at 3pm and kids will need to be picked up no later than 3.15pm.

What does a typical day look like?
Our program kicks off at 9am with everyone in together enjoying a short drama, singing, a Bible story and games. This is followed by small groups activities based on school year. Over the three days children will have a chance to star in a medieval movie, decorate a cake for a king, as well as train to be a knight or jester in the king's court! There will be a chance to ask questions about the Bible story and we will break for morning tea and lunch during the program.

Who is in charge?
Heading up our team of leaders is Libby Gale, the children's minister here at the Good Shepherd. Libby is a trained school teacher and has run Holiday Clubs in NSW, Taiwan and Malawi. She is joined by a wonderful team of volunteer leaders from the church. All our leaders are trained and have completed a Working With Vulnerable People Check.

Do I need to supply food for my child?
Morning tea will be provided for all children, but you will need to provide lunch each day. Please pack your child's lunch in a labelled lunchbox. We do not have the facilities to refrigerate everyone's lunches. Please notify us in your registration of any dietary requirements.

Is there anything for parents?
Each morning as you are signing your kids in for the program you will be offered a free takeaway tea or coffee. On Wednesday afternoon from 2.30pm we will be showing the Medieval Movies made by the children during the program. Parents are invited to come along and watch them. This will be followed by an afternoon tea where you can sample your kids wonderful cooking creations.
