Prep students are collected from their classrooms by three OSHC Educators between 3:05-3:15PM, marked off on a roll, and sashed. Any missing students are searched for and, if accounted for, a signature is obtained from a parent or teacher to confirm that their absence is legitimate.

Before leaving Brooke Street. a head count is taken and matched to the roll; this headcount is repeated on arrival at Clarke Street. The roll is given to the OSHC Supervisor, who follows up any missing students with necessary phonecalls.

The preps are walked to the Farmhouse where they eat while discussing the programme and the afternoon's events with staff. They are free to leave the Farmhouse and participate in activities within the OSHC boundaries after 4:00PM

To further support children’s smooth transition to OSHC, Educators will
  • Introduce them to other educators and children;
  • Familiarise them with the service routines such as meal times and hand washing;
  • Clearly explain the service rules and behaviour expectations; and
  • Facilitate the students involvement in group experiences to support them in forming new friendships.
The service will also ensure that children can access quiet places to rest and interact calmly with other children and educators


Year 1-2 students are collected from their classrooms at 3.30PM according to a roll and sashed. Headcounts take place as above.

Year 1-2 children make their way to the OSHC classroom and school library where they eat while discussing the programme and the afternoon's events with staff. The roll is given to the OSHC Supervisor, who follows up any missing students with necessary phonecalls.

They are free to leave the area and participate in activities within the OSHC boundaries after 4:00PM
