Wonder film screening – School Holidays – Orange City Library

Fri 21 April at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Enjoy this hit family drama about friendship, courage and acceptance.

Wonder is a coming-of-age drama about a boy called Auggie who is navigating his way through grade 5 with a few extra challenges.

Auggie has a rare facial abnormality that makes him feel self-conscious, and draws unwanted attention from some bullies in his class.

Wonder is a story about accepting yourself and others, playing to your strengths, and finding out who you really are.

Come and celebrate the start of Youth Week and the closing days of the holidays.

Movie snacks will be provided.

This movie is rated PG and is recommended on Common Sense Media for kids 8 and over, however ages 6 + will be accepted with parents’ permission. All attendees under 6 must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

Bookings are essential and spaces are limited.
