We hope you have all had a wonderful, restful Easter break.

The first week of the holidays was full of fun and of course the ‘rain challenge’. We managed, thanks to having a great bunch of kids who were all pretty flexible with changes we had to make to the program.

On Monday we were clowning around making juggling balls and learned some fantastic circus tricks. The kids spent the afternoon trying out their new skills. Tuesday our Special Visitor Ali came to the centre and showed us some wonderful ways of creating art from plants and flowers. Some of the children’s creations were absolutely beautiful. We will put them on our website this week for everyone to see. Unfortunately the rain spoiled Wednesday’s incursion of Nerf Invaders. It was far too dangerous to have the inflatable. Hopefully the children who were here enjoyed the Nerf gun fun in the hall. Matteo and the girls set up a pretty amazing obstacle course for them to compensate. Our Kites were a huge success. We even saw a couple flying overhead over the weekend.

We are fully booked for the week and have no spots available now for Tuesday, the Pupil Free day.

This week we have lots of exciting activities for the children to enjoy. We hope the beautiful weather holds up for us.

Please remember that your kids need morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch packed for them.
We don’t provide food unless it’s stated on the program.

Today we finally enjoyed our visit from unicorns, the kids have been patiently waiting for this day for so long as we have had to cancel twice before due to covid. It was a brilliant activity which all the children enjoyed. Tomorrow we have Dragon Tao in the afternoon. Unfortunately Ali, who is doing our Art of the Zine incursion was double booked for Thursday. She is going to come in tomorrow morning. If your kids are coming and you have any magazines or papers you want to get rid of, please send them in. We know this is going to be such fun that we are going to carry the activity over to Thursday so that the children can make their own magazines and comics etc. to bring home.

If you are booked for Friday’s excursion, you will need to have the children here no later than 9.00am. The bus will leave at 9.30 and return by 3.00, we will not wait for latecomers.
Make sure the children have suitable clothing for the weather, a hat, refillable water bottle and food. We will be having a sausage sizzle at the park.

Don’t forget our get together next Thursday the 28th at 6.30 after OOSH closes. This is an opportunity for parents to meet with all our staff and other parents utilising the centre. We need to form an OOSH committee and need your support.

Avalon School OOSH is a parent run centre, we need your input to function to be the best we can be and to provide the care, support and activities you want for your child.

Please email if you will be attending so we can cater accordingly.
