March School Holiday 2010 – Time to Learn

New Things to Learn during March Holiday

The March School holiday is here and only last for 1 week. It may be short but it can become an learning and entertaining opportunity for your children by picking up some new skills or knowledge.  Most parents may not have the time to accompany their child for the whole week so why not send them to some useful fun course instead of putting them at home just spending time playing games in computers, WII or DS?   I have found some of the following courses that your child and you may be interested to enroll.  These courses are not short term, most are more than 10 sessions and all longer than 1 week.  This holiday is a good time to kick start some of their interests such as Ballets or Arts for your child and discover the hidden talents in them.
