School Holiday Programs
Extra Curricular Learning Experiences For Students Wanting To Bring Their Ideas To Life
1-3 Day workshops for local primary and high school students run over the course of the school holidays.
We would recommend running some off-the-shelf programs from the BOP program library with programs centred around entrepreneurship, innovation, and STEM.
These programs could either be paid for by your school, or the costs could be passed onto parents in the local community looking to book a ticket for their students.
When organising to host a school holiday program, our team would plan to work with you to tailor the program and offering to suit your school community. Here are a few things to take into consideration:
For us to host a school holiday program at your school we would ask the following:
- A classroom or space to host the program with tables and chairs for 20-30 students.
- Access to a projector for us to share slides with the students
- Students to bring their own devices (high school programs only)
- Ideally access to a wifi network for students to join (not essential)
- A space for students to eat their morning tea and lunch
- Help to promote these programs to your school community
Who It's For
All of our sessions are able to be tailored for primary and high school students. We would typically recommend running primary programs with Grade 3-6 students and high school sessions with 7-10 students. We are however happy to take direction from the hosting school.
A typical school holiday program would see our team taking bookings through our own site and creating a graphic and flyer for you to share with your school community.
On each day, our facilitators will arrive one hour before to the program start time to set up the space. We will set up and run the program with the students after school and then pack up after the program is finished. Our programs typically run from 9am - 3pm each day and students are asked to bring their own morning tea and lunch.
We don't typically require teacher supervision, however, if you would like to have a teacher sitting in to supervise, it is always welcome.
School holiday programs are a big part of what we do at BOP and our team works hard to design and deliver engaging, hands-on learning experiences for students over their school holidays. Here are some of our recent holiday programs:
St Peters School Holiday Programs
Multi-day school holiday programs run concurrently for both primary and high school students in the local area to get them building their own small businesses.
HOTA Young Entreprenuers Hub
A two day school holiday program for primary students to get them building their own small businesses delivered as part of the HOTA Kids Take Over Program.
Virgin Australia Camps
Three day school holiday camps hosted at the Virgin Australia head offices for primary and high school students wanting to explore careers in the aviation industry.
Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre
Three one-day school holiday programs for students in the local community on topics around entrepreneurship, STEM and innovation delivered at the local neighbourhood centre.
School holiday programming is part of our bread and butter at BOP as we work to deliver fun and engaging learning experiences for students wanting to bring their ideas to life over the school holidays.
With the ability to host these programs at school or industry offices, make sure to send us a message to see how we could work with you to host a program for young people in your local community.
