It has been another busy week at OSHC. Many of the children have been developing their building and construction skills by making lots of different structures, using materials such as the straws and connectors, lego, dominos and even cones.
We have also been escaping the heat by choosing quieter indoor games such as Dead Fish and Chinese Whispers instead of going outside on the warmest days, before the children relaxed and watched a movie. The children selected which movie they would watch using democratic methods, building their understandings of fairness and the importance of democracy in our society. Some of our youngest children at the service have set themselves a big challenge by beginning to learn how to play chess. They have been guided and taught by staff and by the older children, and while it is still a work in progress, it is amazing to see how persistent and determined the Prep students have been as they learn a game that can be challenging for even adults to understand.
We are taking registrations of interest for parents and families who would like to have their child attend a School Holiday program at Christian College’s Bellarine Campus. While there isn’t enough time remaining in the term to organise a program for the Easter holidays, it would be great if we could get enough names down to get a program happening at Christian College for the July Holidays. Presently the closest Camp Australia Holiday Clubs are at Ocean Grove Primary School and East Geelong Primary School.
PARENTS ARE REMINDED THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE CLOSED ON MONDAY THE 13TH OF MARCH DUE TO THE LABOUR DAY PUBLIC HOLIDAY!
