School holiday programme

AUT Sport and Fitness Centre’s school holiday programme has an awesome mix of activities to keep your kids active, inspired, and engaged all day long.

Register early as space is limited. Programme is run from our North Campus (Northcote) centre.

2019 dates for holiday programme

Because Easter and Anzac Day fall during the next school holidays (April), we're running our holiday programme during the first week of the holidays only. We will not open on Good Friday (19 April).

  • Week one: Monday 15 to Thursday 18 April

Programme details

We cater for children 5-12 years.
