Poppies will be popping up at the Raglan Old School Art Centre as part of the upcoming school holiday programme.
Young artists attending the programme will paint an ANZAC-themed mural at the Old School to brighten up the dreary concrete wall in the car park.
Programme supervisor Jill Freeman says the children who attend the holiday programme will have the opportunity to share their artwork with the wider community, as well as leaving an artistic legacy at the Old School.
â€œThe holiday programme fits in nicely with ANZAC commemorations and it provides a chance for the children to learn about New Zealandâ€™s war efforts and to express that creatively.â€
Dubbed Easter Eggstravaganza the programme will also include a bevy of Easter activities such as egg treasure hunt, Raglan Park â€˜eggscursionâ€™, egg â€˜n spoon and 3 â€˜egged races, movies and many more fun endeavours.
Running from April 18-21 and April 26-28 from 9am-3pm, the programme is open to children aged 5-12.
A half day is $21, full day is $39 and $136 for the first week and $102 the second week, subsidies are available â€“ bookings are limited to 20 children per day.
