Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

Statement of Philosophy

At St Mary's College OSHC we provide a quality program that nurtures the wellbeing and learning of each student whilst supporting the families within our community.

At St Mary's OSHC we aim to provide:

  • A place that is reflective of our Catholic Dominican ethos.
  • A home like atmosphere.
  • Flexibility in the service to meet the needs of families.
  • A variety of learning opportunities appropriate to the student's interests and ages including Cooking, Gardening, Arts & Craft, Homework Support, Reading Support, Dance Parties and Movie Afternoons.
  • A safe and inclusive environment where students feel welcome and can develop new friendships through play and socialization.
  • A focus on healthy eating that is varied and nutritional.
  • Opportunities for students and their families to be involved in practical decision making about the service.
  • Appropriate supervision and duty of care for all children.
  • Qualified and supportive staff who hold current National Police Clearance, First Aid training and Reporting Abuse & Neglect training (RAN).
  • An affordable, accessible and financially sustainable service.
  • Following the Framework for School Age Care in Australia, My Time, Our Place, we share the vision that, "All Children have the best start in life to create a better future for themselves and for the nation".
