Primary school holiday program
Council operates a school holiday program for primary school children aged between 5 and 12 years old whose parents live, work or study in Moreland.
The program offers a variety of in-house activities, including games, crafts and sports, as well as excursions.
Council's primary school holiday program operates under the Commonwealth Government's Child Care Benefit Scheme.
It follows the staffing qualifications, ratios, and building requirements of the National Quality Framework for Outside School Hours Services and My Time Our Place.
Primary School Holiday Program April 2018
The April 2018 Primary School Holiday Program will operate from our four venues from Tuesday 3 April to Friday 13 April 2018.
Our four venues:
- Brunswick South West Primary School
- Coburg North Primary School
- Brunswick East Primary School
- Pascoe Vale South Primary School
Please note that entry to Pascoe Vale South Primary school will be via Parkstone Ave located at the back part of the building, where the program will be held, due to works at the front of the building.
