Out of School Hours Care is available to all students attending the Junior School. Before and after School programs are conducted at the Centre for Creativity on the Junior Campus.

  • Before School care is available from 7.30am – 8.30am each school day.
  • After School care is available from 3.30pm – 6.00pm each school day.

These programs are eligible for the Child Care Subsidy, to assist families in covering the out-of-pocket expenses associated with these services.

All families wishing to use the facility for OSHC and/or Vacation Care must complete a OSHC Registration Form each year. An annual $20 Registration Fee applies per family. This is invoiced to your account.

Holiday Program

During the holidays, the School facilitates two programs – the ELC Holiday Program for our 3 and 4-year-old students based at the Early Learning Centre, and the Junior School Holiday Program for our Reception to Year 6 students, based at our Junior Campus.

The ELC Holiday Program is designed to cater for our youngest learners. Based in the Mussared (4-year-old program) Building at the ELC, this Program is staffed by our ELC co-educators. This Program ensures a continuation of your child’s learning routine during the School Holiday period, combined with fun activities, experiences and excursions.

The Junior School Holiday Program is based at the Junior Campus, and is staffed by our OSHC team. The Program includes a range of options for students, from virtual reality and robotics workshops, to a range of excursions to the cinema, Goolwa and Victor Harbor, the Theatre and the Road Safety Centre.

Each of these programs is booked on a casual daily-booking basis, allowing flexibility for your family during these Holiday periods.

The ELC Holiday Program is charged at the same daily ELC rate of $120, and the Junior School Holiday Program is charged at the daily rate of $70.

Both programs are eligible to receive the Government’s Child Care Subsidy, and the costs are inclusive of all activities on the day.
