What do others say about our holiday programme group packages?
“A great experience.”
“The children were entertained and there was plenty to learn. Our guides, Dave and Jake, were very informative and their enthusiasm was infectious.”
“A great fun and educational day was had by all.”
We offer the following themed programmes:
April 2018: ANZAC Day — What is the significance of Anzac Day? What does it mean to New Zealanders today? Holiday programme groups can find out while exploring The Great War Exhibition, completing secret missions and working on Anzac-themed crafts. The Great War Exhibition brings Anzac Day home through Sir Peter Jackson's realistic movie-like sets, genuine artefacts, and colourised photographs of World War One.
July 2018: Transportation in the War — The First World War was a time of immense technological change. Explore how transportation evolved through this period of time. Exhibition-based missions, close encounters with actual artefacts. Make and test First-World-War-inspired winged, flying creations.
September–October 2017: Animals in The War — Find out about the role of animals in the First World War by participating in an animal-themed secret mission, crafts and activities.
Children will complete their themed secret missions while exploring The Great War Exhibition, supervised by your holiday programme staff, then participate in craft activities under the supervision of our TGWE staff.
