EXTEND After School Care at St John’s College in 2020

At St John’s College we always act with the safety and best interests of children in mind. At the end of 2019 the College was planning to offer its own after care program, however the process of gaining approval for a compliant program is longer and more complex than anticipated.

In addition, for the College to remain compliant with both Child Safe and VRQA School Registration Requirements we are only able to offer approved programs for primary aged students. For this reason we have agreed that EXTEND will continue to provide approved after care programs for Junior School students from 3.15 to 6.00pm each day. Rebates are available but do vary depending on family eligibility for the Childcare subsidy.

We understand that from time to time parents/guardians may not make it to school on time for 3.15pm pick up, therefore I highly encourage all parents/guardians to register your family with EXTEND so it may be accessed when these situations occur. Students may only attend EXTEND if/when they are registered to attend: there is no cost to register your child. Please refer to the attached flier for more information and instructions on registering.

Breakfast Club

We understand that in many families both parents work and in order to support parents/guardians who need to drop-off their children before 8.15am we will be offering Breakfast Club from 7.30am. Students must be registered to attend and the cost is $6 per morning. Breakfast and activities will be provided. Students must be signed into the program each morning at the Junior School reception. Complete and return the registration form (below) at your earliest convenience if you wish to access the program.
