Exchange a novel start to holidays

SCHOOL holidays can cost a packet but the Postal Hall Book Exchange in Cathedral Square offers endless take-home fun – for free.

In perfect synchronicity the first Sunday of the school holidays coincides with a kids book exchange at the monthly Cathedral Square markets.

It’s a chance for youngsters to swap books with other kids – with two glorious weeks off school to read them.

“[Kids] can be entertained and swap their pre-loved books for a new one while their parents enjoy the huge range of high-quality, WA-focused design, art, fashion and craft stalls,” manager Lucy Searle says.

There’ll be 3D drawing classes, story telling corners and the chance for energetic mini-maestros to try their hand at an interactive musical sculpture.

And the Indigenous Communities Education and Awareness Foundation (ICEA) will be on hand for kids to learn more about indigenous history through NAIDOC week activities.

There’ll also be heritage tours of the old treasury building by heritage architect Ron Bodycoat, 11am and 1pm.

Get along to Cathedral Square, St George’s Terrace, Perth, Sunday July 3, from 11am for a bit of post-election relief.
