The weather is warming up, just the right time to get outside and get some vitamin D to shake off those winter blues!

Brain Breaks provide an opportunity for school aged children to socialise and meet like-minded peers in a park playground setting. Bring a rug, your morning tea and enjoy a break in the great outdoors.

Even if your children are at school and you would like to connect with other GATCA parents you are most welcome to join us for a chat.
