Welcome to the OSHC newsletter article for the last week of Second term. It is hard to believe that the school year is nearly half over. We hope everyone has an amazing last week of school, followed by a happy, safe and relaxing set of school holidays.
Speaking of next weeks holidays, it is time to make your bookings for 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.
Parents are reminded for next term that when they are collecting their child from the service it is a good idea if they carry photo identification, just in case for some reason there are replacement educators at the service. This policy is in place to protect the children and ensure they are being collected by the right people.
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.
