The children have been enjoying the beginning of spring both inside and outside OSHC. There are lots of beautiful butterflies fluttering around the room and on the windows. The warmer days have meant the children can go out and play outside for longer.

Following Nutrition Australia guidelines we are making some changes to our menus at O.S.H.C. We will no longer be serving Juice or Nesquik at BSC. We will always choose the low fat option with milk, cheese and yoghurts. We are also serving fresh fruit daily which gives the children another healthy alternative at breakfast.
Last night parents from Eltham North PS attended a special Book launch for Andy Griffiths. Each child received a signed book (65 Storey Treehouse) and Andy spoke about his journey and told jokes.
