It has been another fun filled week at OSHC. The children have really been enjoying participating in lots of active games, including basketball, sprouts, spud, night at the museum, cricket, tennis, and much more.
This week at OSHC we are thinking about our favourite books, with activities including drawing a cover for your favourite book, creating simple Stories, making up your own comic book strip, and drawing your favourite book characters.
With the commencement of the school year 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. If your child is not allowed by their classroom teacher to bring their hats home after school it is a good idea to have a spare hat in their bag (an old kinder or daycare hat is perfect)
OSHC at Drysdale Primary School operates out of the School hall, We open at 7:00 each school day, and send the children off to school at 8:50, when the teachers are scheduled to commence their yard duty. Prep children are escorted to their classrooms for the first 6 weeks of the school year, by which time they are normally very keen to male their own way to school, however if they are still uncertain we can continue his on an as needs basis. Unfortunately we are unable to accept children into our care earlier than 7:00. Families can access the service through the hall glass door that faces out onto Stonehouse place (tennis courts carpark).
At 3:30pm, 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 http://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.
Despite it feeling like the school year has only just begun, bookings are now open for Camp Australia School holiday programs. Did you know that if your child is registered with Camp Australia they can attend a Camp Australia holiday club anywhere in Australia, even interstate if you need it? This Autumn’s Holiday Club is packed with flavour, fun, energy and opportunities to grow.

Parents please be reminded that in order to use the service they need to be registered with Camp Australia. We are unable to accept children into the service who are not registered with Camp Australia.
