Your OSHC gives children enriching before and after school and pupil free day experiences. Our dedicated approach provides a service that is tailored to St Mary's Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School, ensuring that the evolving requirements of your child, school and community are met.
The program at St Mary's Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School Your OSHC is unique and tailored to the educational ethos and values of your school and the individual needs of the children in the service. In every before and afterschool session, your coordinator designs a featured activity to engage the children. Complementing the feature activity are experience zones that give children the freedom of choice and guide them to learn through play. Our Pupil Free Day sessions have at least three key feature activities, based around family and child feedback. Pop into the Your OSHC service at St Mary's Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School to chat to your Coordinator about the program.
