Beat the January Blues

Once the excitement of the Christmas season is over, and you enter Term 2, we invite you to a series of events where you can gather, giggle, get outside and meet others. For ten days in January (Monday 22nd - Wednesday 31st January 2024), our activities will boost your mood and help you forget about the winter weather. Be sure to book your spot at these events and activities!
