Term 3 Activities


July 30, 2021

As you can imagine it’s been a pretty quiet week at OOSH.

We have had plenty of time to work on our Quality Improvement Plan and will have it ready for viewing later in the year.

This week we made our marmalade.  We collected the oranges from the fruit trees in the school grounds. We enlisted a couple of helpers for washing and  chopping and it wasn’t long before we were able to put it all into jars for the children to take home.

This afternoon we celebrated Olives 7th birthday. Sarah and Karen decorated the centre and made an afternoon tea party for the children.

We will be judging our colouring competition next Wednesday giving you all a few more days to get those entries to us. We have already had some pretty special works of art arriving in the “in box”.

We all miss you terribly and can’t wait to see you all again soon.  In the meantime we will keep you posted.

Have a great weekend everyone and keep an eye on our Facebook page to see what antics we are up to.


The OOSH team.

Hi  everyone,  we hope you have all survived another week of lockdown and are looking forward to the weekend.

Karen and Sarah are still here before and after school , keeping the home fires burning and taking the opportunity to work behind the scenes making  improvements to your centre. We are currently working on our new Quality improvement Plan and would love to hear from you with any ideas you or your children may have for improvement.  We are open to hearing what you would like, don’t like no matter how crazy it may seem.

We are also working on the Spring holiday program and already have some exciting incursions booked.

As today is international pyjama day, this afternoon we will be in our Pyjamas and slippers, serving milo and marshmallows as a special Friday treat.

Next week we are having a colouring competition.  Follow the link to our website and download your favourite picture to colour in.   https://avalonoosh.com.au/news/

There are three book vouchers from Beachside Books to be won:-

  1. The neatest
  2. The most creative
  3. The most colourful.


Send your creations to OOSH for judging next Friday.  The winners will be announced on August 2nd.

Stay tuned to hear what we are up to next week.  Christmas in July perhaps?

Keep an eye on our Facebook page to see what we are doing.

We are missing you all, hope you are all staying safe and well.  We can’t wait to have you all back very soon.

A world without children is far too quiet.
