Welcome back to OSHC at Camp Australia Drysdale Primary School. Wow, only two weeks to go until holidays.
With winter now well and truly here, and lots of much needed rain falling. Here are some activities that inside that you might like to try out at home, maybe even during the school holidays.
- Do some cooking
- Make a jigsaw puzzle for magazine pictures, postcards or photos. Glue the pictures onto cardboard, and when the glue is dry, cut it out into puzzle shapes…then put it back together
- Create a board game, make up your own rules and then challenge your friends and family.
- Turn on the music, turn off the lights and have a disco, or even a dancing competition.
- Dress Ups. Who doesn’t love dressing up as their favourite superhero or TV character. The children could even make up their own short play about their favourite characters, and then put on a performance for their family and friends.
- Have an indoor picnic – at least the ants won’t be after the leftovers.
With the term quickly drawing towards a close it is time to start thinking about School Holiday Program. The theme for these holidays is Wonders of the World, which offers a journey through international cultures, cuisines, sports and creations. Bookings for Camp Australia’s Holiday Clubs are now open. Copies of the program that will be on offer at our two closest Holiday Clubs, Ocean Grove Primary School and Geelong East Primary School, are now available at the service, and are also on the Camp Australia School Holiday Club website, which is www.campaustralia.com.au/holidayclubs. If these locations do not suit your family’s needs, then programs are also located at Fyans Park Primary School, Montpellier Primary School and Geelong Lutheran College.
OSHC at Drysdale Primary School operates out of the School hall, We open at 7:00 each school day, and send the children off at 8:50, when the teachers are scheduled to commence their yard duty. Unfortunately we are unable to accept children into our care earlier than 7:00. At 3:30, once the school bell goes, children attending after school care walk over to the hall from their classrooms, with preps being picked up from their classrooms and we provide a safe place for them to play and engage with other children until they are collected. Our closing time is 6:00. For more information on our service and fees, you may visit our website www.campaustralia.com.au. If you prefer to speak to us, you can contact our friendly Customer Care Team that is available to support our families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – except for National Public Holidays. Alternatively, you’re welcome to visit us in service and chat with our qualified Educators about the Camp Australia program at your child’s school.
A friendly reminder for parents that for staffing and catering purposes children should be booked into OSHC through the Camp Australia head office, and that should you need to cancel their booking please can this be done through head office as well. This works out much cheaper for you, as there are additional fees involved if children do not attend sessions they are booked in for. Bookings can be made or cancelled by logging into the Camp Australia website https://www.campaustralia.com.au or by ringing 1300 105 343. The team are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (except National Public Holidays).
We look forward to seeing you and your family soon! From the Team at Camp Australia.
