St Catherine’s Outside School Hours Care is located at St Catherine’s Primary School, within Upper Mt Gravatt/Wishart Parish. We also provide care to the children from Wishart State School .
We aim to provide care that will best meet the needs of the families and the social, intellectual, physical, emotional needs of the children by:
– Providing care and recreation for children in a safe, fun, supervised environment,
– Providing a variety of fun activities which meet the needs and interests of children, and;
– Responding to the need of the families through the provision of flexible permanent or casual care.
Our service is well equipped with a range of resources for children, air-conditioning, a separate homework room, a huge concrete oval and access to the multi-purpose hall and grass oval. We run a homework club in a separate room to support the children and families in managing their busy lives.
We run two sports activities each term. This is to encourage children to actively participate and enjoy physical activities.
