During the last school holidays there was a holiday programme at New Brighton Library. Activities ranged from paper airplanes competitions, star weaving, scavenger hunts to newspaper fashion shows. One of the highlights was a Playstation Tony Hawk comp. Cheapskates gave us some goodies and the participants were thrilled ;-)
The Pulse chatted to Amber, Kelsey, Shawn and Sonia who participated in most of the events.

Shawn: Yeah, hang out with my friends and going to the movies
