St Pius Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) Banyo
St Pius OSHC service offers Care to the Banyo/Nudgee where we operate out of St Pius Primary School’s hall.
Our Outside School Hours Care program supports working families by providing a safe environment before and after school that is designed to cater to their children’s age, skills, interests and abilities.
We do this through a flexible and adaptable child-initiated program incorporating children’s ideas, cultures and interests. We view a child as having preparedness, potential, curiosity and interest in constructing their own learning and in negotiating everything the environment brings to them. We provide the environment and guidance that gives opportunities for discovery, exploration, creativity and choice.
We strive to foster an environment that celebrates diversity and interdependence. We encourage children to value and respect the individual uniqueness, spirituality and contribution of others.
We work with St Pius Primary School and our parish community to give the children the best possible experience whilst they are in our care.
We offer the Government funded Active After School Care program which involves an outside coach coming to the service for one hour and engaging the children in a specific activity. Children have a vote each term as to what they want to do the next term.
