The Program

The Out of School Hours Care Program operates from "The House" which is in the School grounds facing Third Avenue, St. Peters. It offers regular Before School Care, After School Care, Occasional Care and Vacation Care for the children of East Adelaide School and the local community.

After school activities are less structured than those offered during the vacation periods, to allow the children to 'wind down' after the school day.

The programme's activities are designed to meet the interests of children aged 5-12 years. Children are offered the opportunity to participate in leisure and recreation activities (eg. art, craft, games, gardening, cooking, drama) in a 'homelike' atmosphere.

Excursions are made locally and further afield, during the vacation periods. Nutritious snacks (sandwiches, fruit, etc.) are provided daily.

For After School Care, the reception and year one children are collected from a central location at the School each day by an After School Care staff member and are taken or directed to "The House".

The Advisory Committee

The School Council is responsible for the organisation and management of the Program and this is done through its Out of School Hours Care Advisory Committee.

The Advisory Committee is composed of parent, School Council and School Staff representatives and OSHC Director.

The Advisory Committee meets monthly and reports regularly to the School Council. Any parents who wish to do so are welcome to join or to assist the Advisory Committee.

Social gatherings are held from time to time for both children and parents.


The School Council employs the staff of the Program. The staff are all experienced in the provision of care and recreation activities for children.

The Director is responsible for overall conduct of the Program and is the person with whom parents should communicate regarding the Program and matters affecting their children.


Parents who wish to enrol their children must sign an Enrolment and Consent Form. These are available at "The House". Children need only enrol once each year for After School Care but must enrol separately for Vacation Care periods. The program does not always operate for entire vacation periods, particularly at Christmas time, and parents should check the days on which care will be available.

It is the responsibility of parents to provide the OSHC with 24 hours notice of both enrolment and non-attendance of their children. Where notice is not given of non-attendance, a fee will be charged.

Enrolments have risen steadily since the Program began and space in "The House" is limited. It cannot be assumed that immediate enrolment, particularly for occasional care, will always be available.


The fees are increased by the Management Committee from time to time as required to properly fund the Program.

Policies relating to outstanding debts and late fees are available.
