NEWSLETTER - TERM 4

T his year has just flown. Lots of fun was had in in our September/October Vacation Care. Children who attended rated the Bungee Run and Nerf gun day as their favourite activities.

Congratulations to this term's ORC (OOSH Representative Council) members: Lana, Mia, Mahli, Jett, Blake and Matilda.

A Philosophy Aim of our service is to provide opportunities for fun, freedom choice, individuality, new experiences, challenges and happy memories. This is shown by the children choosing their own activities to participate in, interacting with their peers and enjoying the experiences that Educators program for them. Lots of imagination and creativity has been shown by our children in their craft, sensory and role playing activities. These have included: Offices, dress ups, restaurants, cardboard box construction, collage, painting, Halloween and Melbourne Cup crafts, cooking, dirt and water play, goop and playdough.

A big congratulations to one of our children, Kyena for taking out 1 st place in the Gulangfest Artworks, for years 3 – 6.

Please feel free to browse through our programming book and centre displays for special focus projects, artwork, photos and examples of your children doing what they enjoy most, just having fun. We welcome any suggestions from parents for ideas or activities you would like to be included in our Program.

Attendance
Please notify staff as soon as possible if your children will not be attending on a scheduled day.

If your child is not at school or leaves early for any reason you MUST contact us directly, as the school office is not always aware of a child’s attendance at After School Care and therefore will not let us know.

Notification is vital to the safety of your children. An absent child is acceptable – a 'missing' child is not. If your child does not attend a booked attendance, he/she will be marked absent and the normal fee will be charged. We have been lenient in this area in the past, but this has caused continuing problems with staff ratios resulting from non-attendance of children with bookings.

Parent Information
Please check your Parent Information Folders - located at the Sign-In/Out area – at each attendance to ensure you have all receipts, reminders, notes and all relevant information necessary to your use of the service. If you have any ideas or would like to add anything to our newsletter (e.g. –upcoming events, for sale, info for parents etc.) we would like to hear from you.
