Back to School is a Breeze at Grand Central!

Awesome workshops for the kids!

Back to School is a Breeze at Grand Central!

Why does ‘Back to School’ have to be such a chore? This year Grand Central has created a series of Workshops and Services that will have you back enjoying your holidays in no time.

From Monday 8 until Sunday 21 January, Grand Central will introduce their first ever contact bar.

Open from 10am – 4pm daily, parents can have their child’s books covered (without the hassle) for as little as a gold coin donation per book.


There are six exclusive contact designs for families to choose from and best of all, 100% of proceeds will be donated to Hope for our Children – a Toowoomba based charity that is dedicated to ensuring children within the foster care system are provided the best chance at a fresh start during their transition to a new home.

For students, there are several fun and interactive (and dare we say it – educational) workshops and guided tutorials to choose from including;


Monday 8 – Sunday 14 January – Decorate your own library bag is a FREE workshop where attendees will be given a plain calico bag for them to decorate however they choose. Pens and decorations will be provided. Students may use their bags all year round when visiting the library or attending sports or extracurricular activities.


Wednesday 10 January – How to tie your laces with The Athlete’s Foot, perfect for the little ones attending school for the first time, or those that simply have not yet got the knack for tying their laces.


Saturday 13 January 10am and 11.30am – Style up your shoes* with this incredible workshop students will be guided through the process on how to make your one of a kind shoes. Finished by their choice of coloured laces to complete the look. For just $10pp (not including booking fee) all materials including canvas shoes will be provided.



Monday 15 – Sunday 21 January 10am – 1pm (daily) – Personalise a pencil case is a free workshop where by using fabric pens your child can transform a plain calico pencil case into a practical piece of art that is as unique as they are!  They will be so proud to take their personalised creation to class – and you won’t have to worry about getting confused with any other child’s!



Saturday 20 January 10am and 11.30am – Create a Memoboard* for just $10pp (not including booking fee) attendees at this guided workshop will create their own memo board or organizer station, for homework, school projects and more! All stationary and tools will be provided so your kids can personalize their memo board to suit their style and needs.
