Our Winter Vacation care program is filling fast, we only have a limited number of positions for our excursion days left. Bookings will close on Friday 17th June, this means will not accept any bookings after this date as venues need to confirmation of numbers attending, and we also need to roster staff with adequate notice. Please return forms asap.

Monday 18th July is a pupil free day for children attending both schools, Ashbury Public and St Francis Xavier. If you require care on that day please complete the Vacation care program and return it by Friday 17th June. Our program for that day is an incursion titled ‘From Russia with Love’’.

Splash Web site upgrade
Splash centre is currently working on building a new Splash web site. We are going to be moving towards a on line booking system hopefully in Term 4 of 2016 or alternatively Term 1 of 2017.
I will keep you posted with lots of information as it come to hand. We would also like to use photo images of children who have attended our Vacation care programs and general photos of our day to day activities. I will put a portfolio together and ask for individual approval from all families before any photos are used.
I would like to say a big thank you to Christopher Pockley who gave an hour of his time to the children of Splash Centre. Christopher brought in a human skeleton which the children thought was amazing. The children discussed the names of the different bones and where they were located in their bodies. Everybody learnt something new!
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones,
Now shake dem skeleton bones!
The toe bone’s connected to the foot bone,
The foot bone’s connected to the ankle bone,
The ankle bone’s connected to the leg bone,
Now shake dem skeleton bones!
If any parents would like to come in and share something of their profession with the children we would love you to be part of our program. Please feel free to call or email me at Splash Centre.
