Our after school care service runs each afternoon from 3.30pm when school finishes to 5.50pm.Preps are collected from their classrooms by OSHC staff at 3.25pm prior to the school bell going, and taken to The Farmhouse with staff, where a light snack is then provided. After eating, children are free to play or can participate in any of our structured activities for the afternoon.A second snack is served after 5.30pm for any remaining children.
Our morning service runs from 7.30am to 8.45am, when students are then escorted to Brooke Street by staff and left in the care of a yard duty teacher.Breakfast is served from 7.30am to 8.30am offering a variety of cereals, toast and toppings, and fresh fruit. Low fat milk and water is always available.As in the afternoon, a range of activities are on offer; however, given the time of day, and different arrival times of the children, there is more of an emphasis on quiet reflective activities and games.
The program keeps the school community informed of activities through the school newsletter, our website, and displays at The Farmhouse.
