Community Program

Taskworks is Australia’s first 100% hands-on activity center for Primary school (Prep – Grade 6) and Secondary school (Years 7 & 8) aged children.

It is unique in that children are immersed in activities that challenge their body and mind for the duration of their stay. It is open exclusively to Holiday Programs and Community Groups Mon – Fri during the school holidays and open to all community groups on weekends.

When visiting Taskworks the children will be divided into small groups and rotated throughout the facility for the duration of their stay. They will experience all the activities and given that each activity requires a combination of different skills, each child is sure to find an activity they thoroughly enjoy.

The 6 Task Centres (activity areas) promote the development of the following skills:

  • motor skills (coordination)
  • problem solving
  • teamwork
  • communication
  • leadership
  • initiative
  • creativity
  • competition
Skills encouraged in current teaching and learning programs, which prepare children for success in education, work and life.

Other features:

  • Our professional staff guide the children through the activities, giving simple instructions at the start of each task. Teachers and parents are encouraged to assist the children in their activities.
  • All activities are indoors (the perfect summer or winter excursion) and school exclusivity creates a safe environment for your children.
  • We provide an eating area for children. Snack food and drink is available for purchase, however children are required to bring their own healthy lunch (sandwiches, fruit, etc).
