How to have a safe, happy, and productive holiday season

 Dec 16, 2016

New Horizons Australia would like to thank you for your support this year. We are grateful to have been a part of your organisation's learning and professional development over the last 12 months.

Based on our favourite Christmas films, here are our top tips on having a safe, happy, and productive holiday season.


Leave your school-aged offspring at home, unsupervised, when you head off on your overseas holiday. You will:

  1. Have a kid-free and stress-free break
  2. Keep your house safe from burglars
  3. Start renovations on your asbestos-containing house


Turn your partner’s work Christmas party into a mini war zone. Suggested activities:

  1. Ride ON TOP of the elevator
  2. ‘Take care’ of annoying colleagues
  3. Jump out the window onto a moving car for some fresh air


Take note from the elves: work doesn’t stop just because it’s Christmas! Here’s some ways to keep your hands busy:

  1. Save time by combining dessert with breakfast*
  2. Skip the small talk: swear lifelong friendship in your first conversation
  3. Put your pretty face on all your Christmas cards

*stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup

Merry Christmas everyone!
