​​Messages from the Team: 

We would like to welcome Jacob to our YMCA Gumdale OSHC team. Jacob is currently studying a Bachelor of Primary Education and is eager to expand his skills and experiences within the industry. We are looking forward to Jacob further strengthening his skills within our team to make a positive contribution to Gumdale OSHC. 

What we’ve been doing: 

Over the last few weeks we have replanted and replenished our gardens and sustainability program here at OSHC. Our children have been immersed within this program and have been actively participating in the maintenance of these gardens. This term we have continued to replant fruits and vegetables which provide fresh produce for our menu. We have seen the introduction of a worm farm and compost system which has been key for our children to take responsibility for sustainable living. 

This month we have continued facilitating the local Carindale Library to borrow books. Previously, we were looking at gardening and sustainability and now we have shifted to Science, Mechanics and Greek Mythology. Our children have shown particular interest in sharing facts and ideas they have learnt from the books. This has been a fantastic opportunity for our children to practice public speaking when sharing their information. It is great to see so many of our children enjoying the leisurely activity of reading.

Join us for:

Term 2 has now commenced and is off to a busy start! This term we are continuing with RDK sports and would like to welcome any children attending YMCA to participate in this program. This will be commencing as of week 3 during the after school care program on Tuesday afternoons. This is a Multi-Sports Program which allows students the opportunity to learn and develop skills through a diverse range of sports. These sessions are modified for different age groups to ensure maximum engagement from each child.
