Here's some family fun after the school holidays! Explorers presents Games Day...

For ages 6+, in honour of Anzac Day, our GamesMaster Wayne McDougall and other games enthusiasts will present on games, strategy and their relationship to war in history.

This Anzac Day and this centenary year of the Battle at Gallipoli is a time to remember heroic sacrifice and the tragic losses and sufferings of war.

Did you know that mathematicians, playing games, may have stopped another World War? Games as a peace making tool go back to the Middle Ages. We will show how the royal courts learned the advantages of diplomacy over fighting, through playing games.

Why is Jenga like Europe in 1914? What can we learn about battles from Connect 4? Would you go to war over a game of Monopoly?

We will have a peaceful time answering these questions and playing these and other games, while thinking a little deeper about their meanings and their reflection of history.

For the under 6, Sue Breen, lead teacher from Small Poppies, will bring a collection of Logic Games to puzzle and delight your preschooler.
