School’s out and it’s Game On across the Gold Coast

A unique school holiday program focused on the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will keep kids entertained on the Gold Coast from Saturday.

Game On will offer a huge variety of free and low cost sport, movement and lifestyle activities for kids at local parks, pools and community centres during the summer break.

Acting Mayor Donna Gates said the Game On Kids Holiday Program was a great way for kids to embrace the excitement and enthusiasm of GC2018.


“There is an activity for everyone and it’s a great way to keep the kids active and entertained over the holidays,” Cr Gates said.
