Please note that places in our OHSC Program are in high demand and we have had waiting lists for a number of days of the week during the past few years.
Aranda Afters offers Outside School Hours Care (OHSC) during the school term.
Our program hours of operation are: 3.00 pm – 6.00 pm; Monday to Friday during ACT school term time. Excludes ACT public holidays.
Afternoon tea is served at our Outside School Hours Program each afternoon. A link to a sample menu is below:
Students, in Years 4, 5 and 6, are issued “chrome books” as part of their learning program at Aranda Primary School. Our program allows children to use their chrome books for educational purposes through an agreement between the child, their parents and the service. In 2019 the nature of this agreement has changed, and students will need to complete and return an updated form before they can begin using their Chromebooks within the program. A link to a copy of the agreement is below.
Aranda Music and Arts (AMA)
Many of the children attending Aranda Afters also attend programs operated by Aranda Music and Arts (AMA).
Families, with children participating in AMA programs, are asked to complete and return an Extracurricular Activities Permission Form to the Aranda Afters office to ensure our rolls are maintained accurately. This is particularly important in emergency situations as we need to be able to account for all children who are meant to be with us.
NB: Children will not be able to depart from Afters to attend these programs if the permission form is not returned.
