Finally, the term break has arrived once more! 

From 27 May to 25 June 2023, studious youths can finally put aside their books for movie marathons, video games and exciting experiences. With only two long vacation periods in between an otherwise rigorous academic year, why not make every term break the best it can be? 

To help you curate the vibrant vacation break your child deserves, we have consolidated 8 novel and refreshing June holiday activities that your child will definitely love.
