Before and After School Care (Prep – Year 6)
Camp Australia – Guiding Children’s Growth
We are proud to partner with Camp Australia to provide our Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) program.
Camp Australia programs are centred on child enrichment, while ensuring a reliable, engaging and hassle-free OSHC service at our school. Their engaged educators foster a safe, inclusive environment where children can relax, have fun and grow.
Camp Australia recognises that children need a different experience in term time to the experience they have on their holidays. Families can choose Your OSHC for before and after school experiences during term, or Rocketeers during the holidays.
Your OSHC – OSHC that inspires
At Your OSHC by Camp Australia, every before school, after school and pupil free day program is tailored to the likes and interests of each child in service. Camp Australia’s educators design enriching experiences to inspire your children’s confidence, independence and imagination. In any one week, they could be participating in science experiments, active play, creative expression and more – they believe in learning through experience so that each child can grow.
Rocketeers – Extraordinary Holiday Adventures
Rocketeers by Camp Australia is a space for children to escape the ordinary and experience the extraordinary during their school holidays. Every school holiday break is a new mission for children to embark upon. With carefully designed programs, directed by the children and informed by family feedback, no two days are the same with Rocketeers. Experiences planned could include games, arts & crafts, sport, excursions, cooking, coding and more.

We understand that our youngest members of the college may find this a little daunting and overwhelming. We want to reassure parents that the staff at Camp Australia have transitional programs which help your child find comfort and confidence in transitioning between prep and after school care. In the mornings, prep children are walked directly to their class teacher from the MACC Club room (above the church auditorium) to their classroom. Kindergarten and other students wishing to walk with a staff member also have that option until we feel that independence is ready to be encouraged.
There is constant and consistent communication between the administration staff, teaching staff and Camp Australia staff to ensure the safety and wellbeing of each student attending.
The school cannot take bookings as it is all done via Camp Australia (phone or online). However, the school is more than happy to relay a message to your child if you need to let them know that they need to attend MACC Club in the afternoon.
We encourage parents to register online even if you think you won’t need it. It is better that Camp Australia staff are already equipped with the current and correct information of your child if ever you need to book them in.
Please be aware that when you registering your child online, you will be required to provide as much details in relation to any medical or family information that we need to be aware of. If your child is anaphylactic, asthmatic or has any other allergies, please be aware that you will also need to complete other medical documentation. You will also be required to provide any medication that pertains to your child medical conditions. All medication needs to be labelled with your child’s name and will be placed in our medications box. Please understand that your child’s medication in the school top office is not an option. We ask to provide another set of medication solely for before & after School Care.

If you have any other questions, concerns or would just like to chat about your child’s progress in MACC Club, please do not hesitate to contact the coordinator via email or phone.
