Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)


The OSHC program at Our Lady of Mt Carmel Parish School is here to support families by providing a welcoming and safe environment outside of regular school hours.  
OSHC offers a wide range of age-appropriate experiences and activities, catering to the strengths and interests of the children as well as the opportunity to play and socialise with friends.

OSHC at Our Lady of Mt Carmel Parish School is situated within the school grounds, providing added convenience for families and safety for children. This also allows for communication between class teachers and OSHC staff regarding the welfare of your child.

Our OSHC service is also available to all families during Pupil Free Days or early finish times at the end of each term.

The Vacation Care Program runs Monday to Friday every school holidays (except Public Holidays and a two-week closure between Christmas and New Year).
