Farewell Therese :(

Therese has been a dedicated staff member with our service for nearly 2 years. She's been an OOSH worker for over 15 years and is a fountain of knowledge and a great support to staff, parents and children. She will be greatly missed when she leaves our team on 29 June. Farewell Therese. We wish you well for the next chapter of your journey. We hope you will stay in touch and visit us from time-to-time!! 

Fundraiser: Breakfast on the Run for Parents

We're looking forward to our fundraiser which is all the idea and planning of one of the year 5 children in attendance. Please get behind this and support the much endangered platypus in Australia by buying a delicious takeaway breakfast on the day. If your child doesn't usually attend that before school care day, feel free to drop in anyway. We'll also have hot chocolate and muffins for children.

Year 6 Events for 2022 

Each year we celebrate the growing independence of our year 6 children and support their readiness for high school with some the very popular year 6 events. The events for this year have been planned and organised with the help of the children themselves. Any year 6 child is welcome to attend. The permission forms can be found on our FORMS & DOCS page.

Excursion planned for Tuesday 12 April will be changed to an In House event 

As a result of the continuing bad weather, the excursion to Blackheath originally planned for Tuesday 12 April will be cancelled. Instead the children will be partaking in an exciting In House Event. We will have a sausage sizzle lunch still and then Walkabout Reptiles will be visiting from 2:30pm
