Outside School Hours Care

We are proud to partner with Camp Australia to provide our outside of school hours care program.

To help families prepare for the new school year, bookings for Outside School Hours Care are now open for 2020.

So that Camp Australia can care for all students, they do recommend that families register an account with them and always book in advance.

Why register? To attend the care of Camp Australia, parents/guardians must register their child by completing an online enrolment form via the parent portal. It’s very important that parents/guardians fill out all compulsory enrolment documentation for their child and notify Camp Australia of any medical conditions, illnesses and other, to ensure the health and safety of all children in their care.

To find out more about the program at our school, including hours of operation, fees and how to register, please click the link below.

Statement on Insurance at School

The Department of Education and Training (DET) does not provide personal accident insurance for students. Parents/guardians of students who do not have student accident insurance are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including the cost of ambulance attendance/transport and any other transport costs. Parents/guardians can purchase insurance policies from commercial insurers. Personal property is sometimes brought to school by students, staff and visitors. This can include, but is not limited to mobile phones, electronic games, calculators, toys, musical instruments, sporting equipment, and cars parked on school premises. The Department of Education and Training does not hold insurance for personal property brought to schools and it has no capacity to pay for any loss or damage to such property. It is probably wise for valuable items to be left at home. For further information, please contact DET Central Staff member: Jane Wilhelm at wilhelm.jane.j@edumail.vic.gov.au or phone 9637 2509.
