Camp Australia – After Hours Care
About the program at Cranbourne South Primary School
The Outside School Hours Care program at Cranbourne South Primary School provides time for homework, time to relax, educational activities and a healthy snack. Best of all, our program makes time for kids to be kids – to play and explore, share with friends and enjoy these precious school years
Request the information Pack
This is a great way to get started. Because we will be taking care of your child, we need to know if they have any medical conditions, who is authorised to collect them, what government rebates you are eligible for and lots of other things. Rather than starting the process and then looking around for the things you need, request a full information pack and we’ll send it to you instantly via email. The kit includes: Further information about us, our programs, medical and special needs, our staff, food, how to book a session, program contact details and escalation points.
Before you get started with Camp Australia – you must register for an account. Once you have registered you will have access to the Parent Portal – where you can make and cancel bookings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can even manage your account on-the-go, from a mobile phone, iPad or tablet computer.
When completing your enrolment details online, you will indicate what type of booking you need to make. We have two types of bookings:
Permanent Booking: These bookings are made as 1 session or more per week for an entire term. Permanent bookings will automatically carry over until notification of a change is received by our Customer Service Team.
Casual Booking: These bookings can be made right up to the session commencement time. The Casual Booking fee attracts an additional cost on top of the Permanent Fee, as we will need to arrange for additional food, resources and potentially staff.
Cancellations need to be made a minimum of 7 days prior to the scheduled date of attendance at the OSHC Service to avoid incurring the full session fee. We need this notice to make sure we plan the staff rosters accordingly and also to avoid wastage of food.
Cancellations made with less than 7 days notice will incur the full fee of the booked session, and will be deemed as an Allowable Absence. In accordance with Camp Australia policy and in line Government Regulations, a Doctors Certificate will not be accepted as a reason for non-payment of a booked session.
If you do need to cancel your child/children’s attendance for a Service, please let us know – that way we are sure your child is safe. Cancellations need to be made by the Parent or Guardian, not by the child.
Accounts will be issued to you on a fortnightly basis in arrears, to the address nominated by you on your Enrolment Form. Method of payment is by automatic Direct Debit from either your nominated Bank Account or Credit Card.

Starting school for the very first time is a very special milestone for both child and parent, at Cranbourne South Primary School we start accepting Prep enrolments in April for 2019. Children wanting to start Prep must be five years of age (or older) by the 30th of April in the year they start school. All enrolments to our school require an interview before enrolling. This helps to ensure that the correct enrolment form is completed and that the transition for you and your child is a smooth as possible. Please contact the school office on 9782 2999 to make an appointment.
Kindergartens and Day Care Centres
Our Local community has a variety of carers for our children. If your child attends one of our local Kindergartens or Day Care Centres you will be asked to start looking at schools for your child to attend by the end of Term 1.
Cranbourne South Primary School works with all the Kindergartens and Day Care Centres to ensure a smooth transition for you and your child to Primary School. Transition days are held in Term 4 for your child as well as Parent Information Sessions.
What if my child does not attend Kindergarten or Day Care
This is fine as this is a choice that as a parent you and your family have made. For this reason information will be updated on the website, and once you have enrolled at Cranbourne South Primary School you will receive information in the mail.
Make an appointment today, call us on 9782 2999
Attending school every day is vital for students of all ages to fully achieve.
We all want our students to get a great education, and the building blocks for a great education begin with students coming to school each and every day.
Missing school can have a major impact on a child’s future – a student missing one day a fortnight will miss four full weeks by the end of the year. By Year 10 they’ll have missed more than a year of school.
There is no safe number of days for missing school – each day a student misses puts them behind, and can affect their educational outcomes.
If your child does miss a school day due to illness, please inform the school via our communication app ‘Flexibuzz‘.

CSEF | 2018
The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF) provides payments for eligible students to attend activities like:
- school camps or trips
- swimming and school-organised sport programs
- outdoor education programs
- excursions and incursions.
This $148 million initiative helps ensure all Victorian students can take part in school trips and sporting activities. The fund commenced in 2015 and will initially run for four years.
- $125 per year for eligible primary school students
- $225 per year for eligible secondary school students.
Payments are made directly to the school and are tied to the student. Most payments start from March onwards.
Applications can be received over term one and two. Payments are for the application year and cannot be claimed for previous years.
Year 7 and Prep students in government schools who receive the fund are also able to get support for school uniforms. For more information regarding this initiative, see: State Schools’ Relief
The CSEF payment cannot be used towards voluntary school charges, books, stationery, school uniforms, before/after school care, music lessons, or formals/graduations.
Parent Payment Policy
Parent Payment Policy
The Parent Payment Policy provides guidelines to ensure that parent payment practices in schools are consistent, transparent and that all children have access to the standard curriculum. Each school determines whether an item, activity or service is an Essential Student Learning Item or an Optional Item within the context of their distinct learning and teaching program. The CSPS Finance sub-committee of School Council ensures communication of the rationale for the classification of items, activities or services, requested and charged, is in accordance with the Department of Education (DET) guidelines.
- To ensure value for money, multiple quotes from reputable companies are obtained every 3 years, per the School Council and Finance Sub-Committee, to ensure value for money.
- If parents wish to purchase items independently, a booklist is available, however:
- The same brand and quantities of items on the list should be purchased, so that all students have the same.
- GST will be applied to the final price. GST is excluded if purchasing through the school.
- Items can be taken home for naming/covering, but ALL must be returned to the school.
- Items are kept by the classroom teacher, and are distributed throughout the year as needed.
- Any left over items will be sent home at the end of the school year.
- School Council is primarily responsible for the maintenance of school grounds. In addition, funds are provided by DET as well as much appreciated fundraising. School Council has approved a request for contributions to raise additional funds to address minor/major projects, to ensure our school is of the highest standard. 2018 projects align with the School Council Buildings & Grounds sub-committees priorities.
Notices and Forms
To further assist with smooth organisation of events, families are asked to adhere to all due dates of return slips and money.
No late payments will be accepted unless prior discussion with the Principal.
