Maitland Alive is a week-long program with activities for all ages. It has been running each January for 18 years as a free community event at  East Maitland Public School.

There are fun, age appropriate activities in specific age groups for school children from Kindergarten to Year 9. Each day there will be a mixture of games , singing, story time from the Bible, craft for younger children or other fun activities for older children. There are usually over 250 children who come each day, and enjoy it so much that they keep coming back.

There will be some simple snacks provided that allow for various allergies (gluten free, dairy free and nut free). Feel free to ask if you have questions about other allergies. There is no lunch provided as the program finishes  by 12 noon each day.

Each child should bring their own drink bottle for the day labelled with their name. They can refill it at the school bubblers or taps if needed.

The kids program for School Years K-9 will run from 9.30 am until 12 noon each day.
