Back by popular demand, the Highpoint Mall Virtual Masterclass Series Highpoint Academy will once again offer fun and interactive cooking, science, craft and dance activities for kids during the school holidays – from the comfort of their own homes via Highpoint’s Instagram TV channel.
Created for children aged five to 12, the two-week masterclass series will include four easy-to-follow masterclass videos posted every Monday and Thursday with their corresponding worksheets and study guides downloadable from the Highpoint website. All the necessary utensils can be found easily at home or at the local supermarket.
In addition to the video master classes, free on-the-go activity packs will be available for pickup at the Highpoint Academy booth located in the Highpoint Fresh Food District. The packs will rotate every other day with fun additions to the online videos to keep the kids entertained.
“We are delighted to once again host the second season of our popular digital school vacation program; Academy of High Places. A mix of virtual masterclasses designed to stimulate creativity, imagination, and hands-on play is complemented by collectable activity packs that families can pick up while shopping for essentials. It’s convenient for parents and ensures that kids can still experience the magic of school vacations, ”said Rachel Duggan, GPT Regional Managing Director.
This year’s masterclass series will welcome new and old hosts including pastry stars Alice Bennet (@Misstrixiedrinkstea) and Alisha Henderson (@sweetbakes), scientist and founder of SciencePlay Kids, Dr Loz, mother and daughter artists Darcy and Brodie from See Make Play and local Hip-Hop King Jack May.
Kids will enter the magical world of science from home with Dr. Loz, as she turns everyday household items like milk in the fridge into a thrilling and lasting experience. All Highpoint Academy masterclasses, downloadable activities and take-out packs are free to the community.
