Wow, and just like that, there are only two weeks left of school…less than that when you factor in the Pupil free day on the 13th of September. How fast has this term just flown by…even the children have commented on it.
Please be aware that OSHC will be closed on Friday the 13th of September due to the pupil free day, we will be back open as normal on Monday for the last week of term.
Parents please be advised that on Tuesday the 17th, Wednesday the 18th and Thursday the 19th of September, After School care will be based in the Thinking Space due to School Concert. This does not affect Before School Care. Please ensure that if you want your child to attend After School Care on any of these days you sign the permission form available at OSHC, as the thinking space is outside of our approved area, so even though we are not taking the children outside school grounds, we still need to treat this as an excursion. Thank you for your support in this matter, and to the team at Drysdale Primary school, especially the grade One team, for making this space available to us.
Please also be advised that After School Care will commence operation an hour early on the 20th of September for the last day of school to accommodate the early finish of class on that day.
With less than two weeks to go until school holidays the time has come to make your bookings for School Holiday Program. The theme for these holidays is Superheroes. Your Children will experience fun workshops and activities to build their superhero characters from concept to reality. They’ll create their costumes in Masks & Magic, bowl away the baddies in Strike Force and complete their first superhero mission in Operation: Rescue. 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 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.
