Purchased Holiday Activities

July 25, 2014

Over the two week Balanced Options post school program holiday break in July, Purchased Options responded to requests by families for some respite hours by offering a holiday program to those young adults who access the post school program during term.

The response to these holiday shifts was much greater than we anticipated, and, instead of just a few days we ended up offering a 10 day program over the two week break. The holiday program ran from both the Lilydale and Bayswater sites and included activities such as movies, tenpin bowling and a pub lunch; visits to Chocolateria, Alpaca Farm and Sky High; a trip to the snow; and in house activities like cooking and craft.

Everyone said they enjoyed the activities offered and loved having something to do to break up the two weeks of holidays … and families were grateful of the respite given. Over 30 families took part in the program, purchasing a total of 462 hours of support.

This first Purchased Option holiday program was so successful that we will be sure to offer it again in the next holiday period!
