What do we do in OSHC?

The OSHC service accesses two main rooms (one including kitchen facilities), outdoor play areas and the school gym on occasions for programmed sport activities.

There is a regular program of scheduled activities, where children are provided with choices of activities and equipment, both inside and outside based on their group and individual interests. At least one structured activity is provided each afternoon (eg art/craft, cooking, sport, outdoor game etc,) however no child is forced to participate as we see this time as their free time and a release from the confines of school.
