 Welcome to the last Term of 2009. This will be short, but very exciting term in OOSH J

Vacation Care. Our October Vacation Care Program was very successful, we had the biggest numbers in years! Children enjoyed variety of activities; the most popular days were: Drama Day, Japan Day and Disco with Jumping Castle.

We would like to thank Noah for his excellent work. Children made few short movies, all of which are edited and available on DVD from OOSH office. If you would like to collect your copy, please contact Meg or Lucie.

 Activities in Term 4

Active Sport is back! This term we are back with very popular Active Sport on Wednesdays. We have a professional coach who is going to teach children new games and sport skills. The program starts this week and will continue until 2nd December. All the children are encouraged to participate in Active Sport for an hour.

Hip-Hop. Our dance classes resume this week. Senior group is practising for their Hip-Hop routine which they will present during school concert. They are fantastic!

Homework. Children enjoy doing their homework and OOSH workbooks so much that they were asking if they can do a page or two during Vacation Care – such diligence! On Mondays, our homework time is extended because our two wonderful helpers; Jasmine and Courtney are very keen to help children with their homework and OOSH workbooks.

This Term we also welcome on board Louise - a year 8 student who is doing Duke of Edinborough Award and she chose our OOSH to do her community practice. Louise comes to OOSH on Thursdays.


Melbourne Cup. As usual, we are expecting a lots of bookings on this day. Therefore, please attach a cheque or credit card payment with your booking to secure your place on that day. We are going to have yummy afternoon tea, three legged races on the field, and variety of fun games!
