School holidays offer the perfect opportunity to get out of the usual routine and enjoy the little things. School holidays comprise a significant portion of any school year. Students attend an average of 180 school days per year. The rest of that time is spent on weekends, holidays and vacations.
One of the benefits of school holidays is the time that families can spend together. School work, especially in primary and high school, becomes a child's job. Holidays give families an opportunity to spend time together and celebrate. The focus for students moves away from school and onto family and culture. Longer breaks allow families an opportunity to reconnect.
There's so much to do together that's hands on and heaps of fun. We have an array of game sets including chess, dominoes and checkers in store. A magnificent ebonised timber and boxwood full chess set with original box, c1900. An early Bakelite draught set, c1910 and a double nine whalebone and ebony dominoes, c1900. These are all easy games to learn but hard to master, perfect for all ages and teaches fair play and are known as intellectual sports.
Think your child can beat you at your own game. Come and visit us at Greene & Greene Antiques, Woollahra.
