Important change – new OHSC provider for Glen Huntly Primary School.
Thank you to all the parents and GHPS community members who responded to our survey regarding what was important to you in an on OHSC provider.
The Out of Hours School Care review process is now complete, and we are excited to announce that TheirCare has been selected as the new service provider.
The OHSC working party received several very good proposals, and whilst the decision was not an easy one, TheirCare ticked all the boxes for the broad combinations of factors that needed to be considered and addressed. TheirCare are prepared to invest in freshening up the OHSC space as well as new equipment for the service. They will also implement a range of resources to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible for users of the service, including making themselves available in the final week of term to answer any questions etc.
