School Holidays in Wyong Libraries Provide a Barrel of Laughs and Fun 

With spring in the air and school holidays not far away, Wyong Shire parents scrambling for ideas to keep their children occupied can look no further.

Once again Wyong Shire Council Libraries have parents covered offering a multitude of affordable events to help keep the kids entertained.

Council’s Library Services Section Manager, Ms Andrea Edwards, said the events catered to all primary school aged children and would even be enjoyed by parents.

“The highlight of our calendar has to be the Sean Murphy comedy show,” Ms Edwards said.

“Sean has performed his Kid’s Party Confidential show at the Edinburgh and Sydney Fringe Festivals to rave reviews.

“After dressing as superheros for kids’ parties, Sean has removed the mask and is dishing the dirt on how to survive the festivities – the kids love his energy, while the parents are in stiches knowing his anecdotes are true!”
