This Year's Theme is 'Ready, Set, Game On'! This summer, let’s cheer each other on as we achieve our personal best. We can play on a team, knowing we’re better together, or play on our own to see how far we can go. We’ll learn about our world, ourselves and each other through play and if we stumble along the way, we’ll get up laughing and keep on trying, because failing is sometimes part of the game. Let's give it our best!
