Exciting Announcement - After School Care and Holiday Program

Wednesday 5th September 2018

Dear Families and Carers,

Yarrabah is excited to announce that the Department of Education and Training have allocated the contract for the after school care and holiday program to Blairlogie. This is a very exciting opportunity for families and the school.

We are very pleased to announce that the holiday program will be conducted over the term 3 holiday period. 

We are also beginning to plan for the after school care program, begining in term four.

You will receive a holiday program flyer and enrolment request detailing the proposed program, of which is in alignment with our school purpose of, "providing an individualised and safe student centred learning environment that promotes active learning, encourages adventure, independence and self-esteem maximising student potential.

The program will be based in the community and on site.

The program will be staffed using a 1:2 ratio.

At this stage, due to the late award of the contract, the school have decided to put a cap on placements per day. The school wish parents to know that equal numbers of primary and secondary placements will be made available, based on demand.

We ask that you consider all students and families who would like to access this opportunity. Our enrolment judgements and allocations will be based on the school values of Care and Support. Even though the prospect of being allocated a full time (5 day a week) placement in the program may be ideal for many, we must ensure there is equal access to all families that would like to access this pilot.

You are advised to submit all applications directly to Blairlogie. We ask that you submit applications within the period allocated. Applications will be processed in collaboration with Yarrabah staff.

For further information, contact Blairlogie or the school.

Kind Regards,

Matthew Harris
