December is nearly upon us, and at OSHC, that means the commencement of Christmas activities…although to be honest, some of the children decided to start early. From a festive themed colouring competition run by one of our Middle years students with amazing prizes, to having a go at playing their favourite Christmas songs on musical instruments, Christmas karaoke, lots of Christmas crafts to decorate with, to Christmas themed sports challenges, there is something for everyone over the next few weeks at OSHC.
We would like to extend a special thanks to the parents who have reached out to us following the announcement in the last school newsletter regarding the contract for the provision of OSHC at Drysdale primary School no longer being with Camp Australia for next year. Your kindness and consideration is much appreciated during this challenging time.
With Term 4 in progress, we would like to remind everyone that sun smart hats should be brought to OSHC each day so that the children can go outside and enjoy the amazing weather we get this time of year at after school care. Even if your child is happier inside doing quiet activities, hats still need to be brought if we are doing a whole group activity outside, such as a picnic snack or group games. Having a hat becoming increasingly important as the UV is now higher later into the day, sunset happens later, and temperatures increase. We understand that some teachers ask that school hats be left in classrooms, and suggest that maybe a spare hat, such as an old Kinder or Daycare hat, could be kept in bags for use at OSHC.
We are currently experiencing high numbers of bookings, and we unfortunately have reached capacity of children for the number of educators available to work on multiple occasions. We apologise for the inconvenience this causes for families, and ask that you help us by cancelling bookings that you no longer need so that someone else who needs it can take the place. This can be done via our Parent portal app, on the phone on 1300 105 343, or online on www.campaustralia.com.au.
