Welcome to 2019 and a Happy New Year to all.
Just a quick update, the Twilight Market held at the end of 2018 was a resounding success, so much so that another one is scheduled for the 1st March 2019. Special musical entertainment includes ‘The Midway Pointers” and “Ella & Dan” along with a great selection of food vans and market stalls.
Other upcoming activities include an International Women’s Day event, a Youth Week Skate Park event, several new activities added to our program plus our regular timetable. Be sure to grab a cuppa, sit down and check out our newsletter here for more information.
It’s almost time for the Okines Summer Solstice Twilight Market and it is promising to be a great event.
There will be a wide selection of food vans available to choose from as well as heaps of different stalls just in time for a spot of Christmas shopping.
Sit back and enjoy an evening of musical entertainment (with some Christmas Carols thrown into the mix and word is there may even be a visit from Santa).
Event runs from 4 pm to 8 pm on Thursday the 20th December 2018.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone there. Stay updated on this event and other activities via the Okines Community House Facebook page.
Term 4 is upon us and we have some great new workshops to keep you busy in the countdown to Christmas. Be sure to book early for the Cheese Making and Christmas Pudding/Fruit Mince Tart Workshops as both are capped at a maximum of 10 participants. Also on offer for students after school are taster sessions for drama and musical performance skills.
There is also an opportunity to try something new for ‘Get Online Week” – For this event students and seniors work together to explore the answers to all those iPad, iPhone, android and tablet questions. Also learn how to use the internet to do tasks like online shop, book travel and make appointments while enjoying a relaxing afternoon tea.
