Outside School Hours Care

Out of School Hours Care is available from 3.15p.m. to 6.00 pm Monday to Friday

Please contact the school for bookings.

 

Accounts for the Outside School Hours Care service are sent home once a fortnight.  It would be appreciated if you paid your account by the due date so your next account is not excessively high.

The fees that are charged to families who use the Outside School Hours Care service are used to assist us to pay for the service staff, afternoon tea/cooking ingredients and any other requisites that are required by the staff and children.  As you can appreciate the government funding that we receive does not cover all expenses.  It would be appreciated if you could assist us with this matter by paying your Outside School Hours Care Account by no later than the date stamped onto your statement each fortnight.
