It may seem strange to go to school during the school holidays. But did you know that you can enjoy the playgrounds, ovals and sports courts of over 300 public schools across NSW?! The Share Our Space Program has been running for a year now and opens up local schools for families to enjoy.

Our nearest school is Rydalmere Public School and we like the covered outdoor area for riding bikes and scooters.

Plus there are chickens at the school that we say hi to and a veggie garden you can wander around!

It’s a great way to have a play without the crowds that you get at local playgrounds over the holidays.
