Take flight in school holidays

It’s officially lift-off for the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s Autumn School Holiday Program!

Children aged 6-10 years will be treated to a two-day ceramic aeroplane building workshop at Bankstown Arts Centre on Friday 20 and 27 April from 10am-noon.

Artist and professional ceramicist, Diamando Koutsellis, said the first day will focus on construction, and glazing and colouring on day two. The pieces will then take up to three weeks to be fired in a kiln.

"So often children are busy with devices, so it will be nice to get them to play with the mud and really use their hands," the Croydon Park-based artist said.

"Ceramics are such a beautiful medium on a technical as well as artistic level. You really get to see your project come to life."

Mayor Khal Asfour said the ceramic aeroplane building workshop is just one of the many activities being planned as part of Council’s school holiday program.


"We are providing a range of activities aimed at teaching children new skills, build on their knowledge and really inspire their imagination," Mayor Asfour said.

Activities include:

  • Turbans, Ties and Turkish Slippers - free performance for children aged 5-8 years by Bronwyn Vaughan, at Bankstown Arts Centre - Tuesday 17 April (11-11.45am);
  • Games afternoon at Campsie Library and Knowledge Centre - Wednesday 18 April (2.30pm);
  • Zoomobile - children aged 5-12 years interact with Australian animals, at Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre - Thursday 19 April (2.30-3.30pm);
  • After Dark Adventures - carnival-themed event for children aged 5-12 years with storytelling, games, crafts and snacks, at Padstow Library and Knowledge Centre -Friday 20 April (5.30-7.30pm); and
  • Sk8er Skillz - a two-day workshop teaching youth 12-18 years how to skateboard, at Belmore Youth Resource Centre - Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 April (10am-4pm).
