Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)
We are very pleased to announce that as of Day One, Term Two school council has selected ‘TheirCare’ to operate our before and after school care program as well as vacation care. This is very exciting news for Mackellar, as TheirCare are an industry leader in OSHC and are committed to meeting the needs of our school.
TheirCare provides adventurous and stimulating Before & After School Care Programs in a safe environment for all children. During sessions children develop life skills, friendships, confidence and creativity through play.
If you do have questions for the school rather than for TheirCare, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
