Summer School Holiday Program Information:
The school holiday program Operates from 9.00am to 5.00pm
In house activities will be planned day by day to enable a variety of activities to be available to all participants. According to their individual interests, needs and goals. Specific activities in this program will include craft activities, cooking, bike riding, water and sensory play sessions.
Please send in extra clothes, bathers & towel every day to enable your child to participate in swimming or sensory play opportunities.
Our aim is to give participants the opportunity of choice making and developing skills to help them decide what they would like to do for their holiday activities and progress towards individual goals.
Morning tea, lunch, afternoon snacks and drinks to be supplied by parents unless otherwise indicated in the program. “L” under the date indicates that lunch is supplied. Other days, normal school type lunch is to be sent in.
Meals cannot be heated when out on excursion.
When lunch is supplied by the program only morning tea, afternoon snacks and a drink is required.
Every effort is made to keep to the above program but sometimes we have to change things because of weather conditions, staffing ratios, participant health or behaviour support needs, etc.
