School's out but the hunt is on! Get those kids to camp while you search for the perfect fit for the August intake...
We’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that school’s out this June, woohoo! And the bad news is that school’s out for the next one to three months! Not only will we be scrambling around to keep the kiddos occupied with summer activities, workshops, camps and exhibitions, we’ll also be up against other parents vying for spots in said activities. Luckily there’s more than enough events to go around (just take at our ultimate summer guide) on top of the awesome school camps happening throughout summer. But don’t get too comfortable, parents! August intake has begun which means you only have a couple of months to check out those schools and enroll your kids.
