St Mary’s boasts dedicated before- and after-school as well as holiday care facilities that cater for students from Kindergarten to Year 6, as well as their siblings.

The Centre has use of the school pool, hall, tennis courts, sporting ovals and Junior School climbing equipment. We also have a wide range of toys, games and art materials as well as outdoor play equipment. Your child may also complete homework tasks at our Centre to allow more time to spend together as a family when returning home after a busy day.

The St Mary’s Out of School Care approach encompasses ‘My Time, Our Place’ - a national framework developed for school age care in Australia. The framework acknowledges the importance of exploration, play and leisure in children’s learning and development and that their learning is not limited to any time or place. Developing life skills and a sense of enjoyment are emphasised. The framework recognises the importance of social and emotional development and communication in learning through exploration, play and leisure.

The five outcomes for children are:

•   Children have a strong sense of identity.
•   Children are connected with and contribute to their world.
•   Children have a strong sense of well-being.
•   Children are confident and involved learners.
•   Children are effective communicators.
