Out of School Hours Care

Lindisfarne provides the following Out of School Hours Care services:


Before School Care

Before School Care commences at 7:15am and runs until school begins. Entry is via the pool gate in front of the school administration building and bookings are not required.

Before School Care provides a variety of passive games and activities.


After School Care

After School Care operates from 3:00pm until 6:00pm (EST) each school day. Students are able to participate in a range of activities including outdoor and ball games, cooking, arts and crafts, music and drama and creative play.

Bookings for After School Care are made via your child’s diary. This information is then sent to administration for processing.

Healthy eating is promoted by the provision of healthy afternoon tea. It is requested that, due to an increase in nut allergies, foods containing nuts or nut related products, are not sent to OOSHC.

Students are given assistance to complete homework at After School Care if required.


Vacation Care

Vacation care operates from 8.00am until 6.00pm (EST) Monday to Friday during each school holiday period, however is closed for three weeks during the Christmas/New Year period. Vacation Care provides a wide range of activities and the program is available at least two weeks prior to the holiday period.

As morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are not provided at Vacation Care, parents are asked to provide adequate healthy food and drink for their children.

The Lindisfarne bus is used for all excursions.
