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, and excursions.

Council's primary school holiday program operates under the Commonwealth Government's Child Care Subsidy 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.

School Holiday Program September 2020

With the announcement of stage 4 restrictions and the closure of Child Care Services until mid-September, we are unlikely to operate the September 2020 School Holiday Program, however, keep checking our website for announcements about future programs.

Important notices:

Anyone who is unwell should not attend school, including staff, parents and students. If a student attends while unwell, they will be sent home in accordance with the Department's regular Infectious Diseases policy.

You will not be able to attend the holiday program if:

1. You or any member of your family have been or come into contact with anyone who has COVID-19. 

2. You or any member of your family arrived from overseas within the last 14 days.

3. Anyone in your family has a cold or flu like symptoms.

This is vital to ensure that the well-being of children, families and educators is maintained.
