ROCKOOSH Enrolments 2016

Enrolments for ROCKOOSH are now open.

ROCKOOSH is the name of the first stage of the Before and After School Care Program within the Shire, which will be conducted at The Rock Central School.  It is a result of collaboration between Council and The Rock Central School, whereby the School provides the premises and Council conducts the service.

It is anticipated that the new service will commence in the first school term of 2016, and will be available primarily to primary school aged children.  It is expected that the centre will be licenced for 20 children.

The likely hours of operation will be from 7am to 8.30am and 3pm to 6pm each school day and a vacation care program is anticipated in school holidays.

Fees have not yet been finalised but will be similar to fees currently being charged in other centres.  Parents should be aware that up to 85% of fees are refundable from the Government subject to means testing of income.

It is very important for parents to have their children enrolled well in advance of next year to avail themselves of the opportunity to use this important and needed service.

Enrolment forms are available at the The Rock Central School during school term and downloadable from Council's website,

Further information may be obtained by contacting either Rod Shaw or Craig Fletcher on 02-6920 5305.
