After School Care

St Michael’s school hours are 8.00am – 3.15pm but the school offers out-of-hours’ care for our busy parents.

Before School Care

The school doors open at 7.30am. Pupils arriving onsite before 8.00am report to the Before School Care clubroom which is supervised by a staff member. This is a calm environment in which to chat, read or catch up with last-minute homework. At 8.00am, pupils report to their home classrooms, to greet their class teachers and classmates, and organize themselves for morning lessons.

There is no charge for Before School Care.

After School Care

After School Care begins at 3.15pm. All pupils still on site at this time join After School Care, whether pre-booked or not. The fee for After School Care is $10.50 per hour, and this is charged in quarter-hour increments.

Afternoon tea is served at 3.15pm in the hall and consists of a drink and variously a piece of fruit or baking. Afternoon tea is provided by the school as part of the fee.

After School Care closes at 5.30pm. A late fee is charged after 5.40pm.


Each term, after-school clubs are offered. Most clubs operated until 4.30pm. There may be a charge for a club, depending on any materials required and whether or not the club is taken by an outside instructor.

Recent Clubs have included Crafternoon, Cooking, Minecraft, Drama, Young Voices, Youth Group, and various sports.

Pupils can join After School Care once their club finishes, until 5.30pm. Fees apply.

Holiday Programme

The St Michael’s Holiday Programme runs variously during the school holidays. The dates are published in advance. Children may enrol weekly or for individual days.

We believe our pupils should spend some part of their holiday away from school, so our Holiday Programme does not run for the duration of any holiday.

The Holiday Programme will not operate on public holidays which fall during the school holidays. For example, Easter and ANZAC Day often fall in the April holidays.
