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.

Once our programme has been released, we suggest you register early as space is limited. The programme is run from our North Campus (Northcote) centre.
