Outside School Hours Care


Our Service is currently unable to operate due to severe staffing shortages in the Alpine Area.

We hope to rectify this situation in the near future.

An engaging Outside School Hours Care Service is provided by the Porepunkah Primary School OSHC Service at both ends of the school day for children who require care.  This service is very reasonably priced.

Before School Care

Before School Care operates from 7.30am until 8.50am Monday to Friday.  This service is offered to help working parents who need to start work or leave for work early.  We provide a relaxed caring environment in the mornings with the opportunity for children to work on homework, reading or have relaxation time before the start of the school day.  We also provide a healthy breakfast if needed. 

After School Care

The After School Care service operates from 3.25pm until 6.00pm Monday to Friday.  This service is offered to allow working parents to finish work before collecting their child.  Some students also choose to attend After School Care for the extra activities and socialising with friends.

Vacation Care Program

The School’s Vacation Care Program is currently on hold due to a staffing shortfall.   This will be monitored and reinstated should sufficient staff become available.

Enrolment in OSHC

An Enrolment form is required to participate in any of the Outside School Hours Care services including the Vacation Care Program.
