Church brings joy to teens with school holiday program

School holidays are a time when parents live in fear of hearing the dreaded words "I'm bored" - Kiama Anglican Church has stepped up to help.

This school holidays the church brought together 18 primary students and 12 high school students to attend creative arts workshops, culminating in a concert one evening.

Even parents were surprised to discover the kids hidden talents.

"It was brilliant," exclaimed one, who had laughed hysterically at discovering her son had a dramatic bent.

Another teenage boy turned out to be an ad lib king, and will be returning to school this term to change his electives for 2020 to Drama.

Tracey Piggott, family and children worker at the church said she was impressed by the attitudes of the young people as they worked together to form a team.

"We have some very talented congregation members who will be able to pick it up for next year," she said.

"I am already collecting ideas for next time."
