And just like that, the year is over. The Camp Australia Drysdale Primary School OSHC team would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the families who have used OSHC this year, and for the school for their ongoing support of the program. We would also like to wish the entire Drysdale Primary School Community a very happy, safe and relaxing summer holiday break. We look forward to seeing you all again in the New Year
We have received some feedback from parents about the car park (Stonehouse Place). Please remember that this is a one way street at all times, not just at pick up and drop of time. Just because there are few or no other cars around, and you are running late for work, or want to get home at the end of the day, you are not supposed to drive into the car park from the Bennett Street end. There have already been some near misses, and this is a serious safety matter, Please also be mindful of the speed limit in the car park.
If you haven’t already, it is time to start thinking about your plans for your children for over the Summer school holidays. Bookings are now open for Camp Australia School Holiday programs for over the summer holidays. Holiday club is now being offered from the 23rd of December running throughout January to the 24th, excluding Public Holidays (Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day). 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. Please be advised that due to building works at the school, care at Ocean Grove primary School will only be offered from the 13th of January. We apologise for the late notice and inconvenience this causes. In the Geelong area vacation care programs are also located at Fyans Park Primary School, Montpellier Primary School and Geelong Lutheran College. Going away over the summer? Your Camp Australia registration entitles you to using Camp Australia holiday clubs across the country.
With Term 4 in progress we need to remind everyone that sun smart hats should be brought to OSHC so that the children can go outside and enjoy the amazing weather we get this time of year at after school care. This is becoming increasingly important as the UV is now higher later into the day.
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.
