 Chrome Books

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 Aranda Afters 2021 Extra-Curricular Permissions 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.


Aranda Afters ASC Programs

Term 4, 2021

The theme for the first 8 weeks of Term 4 is All things Nature. Bring a lot of garden themed activities to the program including doing work on the Aranda Afters Garden, Nature Art and Craft activities. Children will learn more about Nature and sustainability through  getting more involved with the environment.

As Term 4 comes to an end for the Christmas Holidays, Weeks 9-10 will have Children excited for the Holidays and Christmas. The program will have lots of fun STEM and Art & Craft Christmas themed activities for children to enjoy. As Term 4 has 11 weeks in the term this year, Aranda Afters is excited to have planned  a full event week including a sports day, a children’s Christmas party and lots more for Week 11!
