Activities

After a more structured school day, it is important for children to have a chance to relax and be able to choose from a variety of activities that appeal to them. Along with the planned and structured activities on offer, children are always free to simply make use of our comprehensive range of free-play equipment. We provide play spaces including areas such as:

 

  • iPads for making movies, karaoke, and lots of other fun and educational activities

  • Home Corner e.g. toy kitchen, dolls etc.

  • Big teamwork toys e.g. build a Go-kart

  • Construction area

  • Dress up area

  • Board games

  • Art & Craft area

  • Reading Corner

  • Computer lab for completing home learning activities and games

Our structured activities originate from children & educators’ feedback. These include drama, art/craft, cooking, science, sports, and construction.

 

A detailed vacation care program will be issued at least 4-6 weeks prior to the vacation care period and will detail special and fun themed days, incursions and excursions.

Children may be involved in supervised cooking experiences whilst attending OSHC which are age-appropriate and may include the use of cooking equipment including stovetops, ovens, toasters, kettles, electric frying pans. Risk assessments will be carried out to ensure age appropriateness and that all safety measures are in place.

Sporting and other Extra-curricular activities

We have a strong focus at our service on encouraging students to increase their physical activity levels by participating in fun and structured activities after school, which will develop essential motor skills.

Children can also access other external activities conducted on school grounds and organised by external parties. They may transition to and from the service to these activities e.g. environmental club, swimming lessons, chess club, martial arts, tennis etc., if parents have signed a specific OSHC permission form to authorise this.
