Our Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) and Vacation Care programs are on school grounds and is available to families before and after school and during School Holidays.

We believe it is important to provide children with care and support to ensure their sense of security and belonging in our community through a fun, interactive and safe environment at school.

St Gabriel’s Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) programs respect the importance of each child’s family and understands that families have different cultural and philosophical approaches to childcare.

Our OSHC and Vacation Care programs provide a multi-aged, structured environment that helps children to develop physically, socially and emotionally in a supportive atmosphere, where children have choices in regard to activities that best suit their age, interests and needs. 

St Gabriel’s Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) provides Before School Care, After School Care and Vacation Care for children aged 5 to 12 years old (Reception to Year 6).

We aim to create a safe and caring environment where all children can feel a sense of belonging and have fun. The program includes planned and spontaneous activities such as art, craft, cooking, sport, science, dance and games.
