The free workshops are organised every year and intended for 4 to 12 year olds. This summer they will be held from the 16th of June to the 26th of August and Girne children are sure to have fun.

A full program of not only physical activities like beach games, various sports, picnics, an animal shelter visit and painting nests but also cultural trips, various science and art workshops are being planned.

Registering and further information is available by ringing Girne Municipality on 0539 112 63 63 or 815 15 08 during working hours.

For all children

Girne Municipality Social Affairs Branch Supervisor Misli Kadıoğlu said they had started these activities seven years ago with just 5 workshops but this year the busy program included twenty workshops and activities. They wanted to provide all children from the region to take part in social activities, make new friends, acquire new hobbies and discover their individual talents. She pointed out that in order for children to grow into happy and successful individuals it was important that families and teachers encouraged them to take part in such events from an early age. They wanted children growing up in their multicultural city to meet others with respect, affection and harmony without regard to ethnic, religious, income, gender differences or disabilities.

“We think it’s important that children are responsive to sports and sensitive to the arts, nature and animals”.

Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü said that in these days of economic difficulties it was vital that all children are provided with equal opportunities to spend their school holidays not by just having fun but also benefitting from educational activities by attending the various training courses. The aim of Girne Municipality for holding these courses for free was to ensure that the next generations grew up to be socially active, successful and live in happier conditions. They would always encourage children to be interested in the arts and sports. He believed that providing these activities to the children would make them responsible individuals especially sensitive to human and animal rights, social and environmental issues and to nature. He thanked the course tutors and municipality personnel who will be engaged in carrying out the activities.
