Unfortunately, the end of this year is tinged with sadness at OSHC as Kane will be leaving us to become a teacher at the commencement of the 2021 school year at Lara Lake PS. We would like to congratulate him on this position and wish him all the best for everything his future brings.
We are currently in the process of digitising our child enrolment records. Please take this opportunity to ensure all of your details are up to date, including your contact numbers, address and any relevant medical information. Keeping this information up to date and complete is a vital part of the service remaining compliant, and we can no longer just change things on your enrolment form, or add details, such as medicare or ambulance numbers, or doctor’s details and have you initial the change. All changes must be done online through the Camp Australia parent portal. Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Although it still doesn’t feel like it, 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 will be open from Monday the 21st of December to Thursday the 24th of December, and then reopens from the 4th of January and running through to the end of the holidays, excluding Weekends and the Australia Day public Holiday. Copies of the program that will be on offer at all Camp Australia Holiday Clubs are now available on the Camp Australia School Holiday Club website, which is www.campaustralia.com.au/holidayclubs. Our closest Holiday Clubs are Ocean Grove Primary School and East Geelong Primary School. 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, so if you are away and want a day without the children you can easily book them into the nearest Camp Australia Vacation care to where you are staying, regardless of where in Australia you are..
OSHC at Drysdale Primary School operates out of the School hall. We open at 7:00 each school day, and children are at 8:50. 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 3:30, children attending after school care walk over to the hall and we provide a safe place for hem to play and engage with other children until they are collected by their parent or other authorised contact. Our closing time is 6:00, please ensure that you have collected your children by then. Late pick up of children may incur additional charges.
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. It is also the responsibility of parents to ensure that your details remain up to date.
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
