School Holiday Programs
Our school holiday programs have been incredibly successful since launching in December 2020

The main aims are for children to make friends, build their confidence, learn performing arts skills but most importantly to have fun.

We decided to run a stage academy in the morning offering students to learn songs, dances and scripts from a popular musical/film.

The children performed the production on the final day which we filmed and e-mailed out to all parents.

We have received wonderful feedback so far from parents, there are some examples below:

Parent of a student who did both The Grinch and Aladdin – Our daughter has recently completed two of the School Holiday programs at The Brain Space.

“The growth, confidence, joy & friendships she gained was priceless. She absolutely loved attending & is already begging to be booked in for the Easter School Holidays."

"The educators and support staff are incredible at what they do. Cairns is so lucky to have a space like this for our children to grow, develop and shine!!”

Parents love seeing their children getting excited about The Brain Space!

Parent of 2 students who regularly attend The Brain Space and did both The Grinch and Trolls.

“I can’t thank you enough for providing such a wonderful week for my girls. They had a ball! I cannot wait to see the video. We are absolute fans of the Brain Space and we will be back for more!”

In the afternoon’s students are put into groups for swimming lessons.

They then have more time in the water learning life saving techniques, water safety and then games with the other groups! The day is finished off with craft and drama games.

On one afternoon students also get to take part in a cooking class with the fantastic Modern Pantry.



Would your child benefit from some fun afterschool activities?

Each afterschool session encompasses up to 4 activities to promote activity and learning to boost your child’s brain!

01 Tuition and Homework Help:

A small group session with our tutors to assist in homework understanding and completion. A relaxed and comfortable space for students encompassing different styles of learning.

02 Daily Activity:
  • FITNESS AND SPORTS – our daily activities may range from a general fitness session, kinesthetic learning games, strength and fitness circuit, or an optional swimming lesson
  • CREATIVE CONFIDENCE CLASSES – Is your child a bit shy and does not like speaking in front of others? or are they outgoing and love to be centre stage? or are they somewhere in between?
  • DRAMA AND PERFORMING ARTS ACTIVITIES, SINGING AND DANCING – Melanie will do her best to tailor the program to what the students love!
03 STEM Centre:

Our program includes STEM competitions and challenges, experiments and ongoing projects, games and activities.

04 Relation and Meditation Corner:

A quiet and relaxing space to chill and read and go on a literary adventure or relax the body through mediation or yoga activity.

Meet the team

Melanie has danced all her life and after school and college she went onto train professionally for 3 years in Musical Theatre in the UK. She then went onto perform in a touring pantomime over the festive periods and teach for an award-winning theatre school. Melanie taught dance, singing and drama to ages 2-18 for 7 years before moving to Australia. Melanie loves all styles of dance from commercial to musical theatre to ballet! She loves keeping active and passing on her passion for the performing arts. She is excited to be working The Brain Space and can’t wait to meet lots of new students!

What’s included
Brain Based Learning

Brain-based learning is motivated by the general belief that learning can be accelerated and improved if educators base how and what they teach on the science of learning, rather than on past educational practices, established conventions, or assumptions about the learning process.

Kinesthetic Learning

Kinesthetic activities help commit learning into long-term memory. Turning a lesson into a physical experience is not only a good way to keep kids focused and engaged – it’s also lots of fun!

Benefits of Sport in Education

Participating in sport and physical activity contributes to the holistic development of children and adolescents.

Not only does participation contribute to physical and mental health outcomes and valuable social connections, but physical activity (including sport) has been linked to cognitive development.

Physical activity has been shown to stimulate brain development and this correlates with improved academic performance. It also lessens the health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle so that healthy, active children become better learners.

Non-Edge Hill State School Students:
