Welcome to our OSHC Club here at St. Columba's Primary School.
We provide Before School Care, After School Care and Vacation Care, as well as all day care during the school's Pupil Free Days.
Our Before School Care service opens at 7 am and we provide a morning snack and take Kindy and Pre-Primary children to their classes. The session is $17 per child.
After School Care operates from 3 pm to 6 pm and we provide afternoon tea to the children with fruit and water available throughout the afternoon. The 3 pm till 6 pm session is $28 per child. If you only need your child to attend after school for a short period, you may book in from 3 pm to 4 pm for a lower fee of $17.
Vacation Care opens from 7 am to 6 pm and we provide morning and afternoon tea. Each day is $65 per child before any Centrelink rebates and/or benefits. Any excursions/incursions/bus travel that occurs on a day is then added on as an extra charge.
Children may attend our service from January 1st of the year that they enter a Kindy class at the school. Unfortunately we are unable to take children attending the Pre-Kindy class.
If you would like to book in to any of our services, please complete our online booking form:
You will then receive log in details for your account with us and can then add your playment details and view your bookings and edit your enrolment form when needed. We also require a copy of your child's birth and immunisation records. Please also send an email to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your bookings requests so that we can enter them into the system for you when we receive your online enrolment form.
If you would like your child to attend the vacation care program you will also need to complete a vacation care booking form (confirming your days). This program will come out before the start of each holiday period and bookings are made on a first come first served basis.
