OSCARS @ St John’s has been operating since 2005. Based from the spacious and modern dining hall, the breakfast and after school club is open to children attending St.John’s RC Primary School in classes P1 – P7.
OSCARS breakfast club operates from the school dining hall and is open from 7.30am Monday to Friday. A nutritious breakfast is served by staff, and children can enjoy a variety of games and activities until the start of the school day. OSCARS staff escort children to their relevant meeting point in the playground each morning, ensuring they transfer safely into the care of their class teacher.
After School Club
The club commences from the end of the school day until 6.00pm Monday to Friday. The club offers a wide range of activities and following consultation with the children, a weekly programme of events and activities is planned.
Each day, children receive a nutritious snack and drink which varies from day to day and the snack menu is displayed on a weekly basis at the club. Unlimited drinks are available throughout the afternoon.
OSCARS staff all wear OSCARS uniform consisting of orange polo shirt, orange fleece and ID badge. They collect children in classes P1 – P3 from their classrooms, while older children are greeted as they arrive at the club.
The programme takes into account the time of year, and incorporates special occasions and multi-cultural celebrations and at regular intervals will include theme weeks. Activities offered always include arts & crafts, physical activities and imaginative play, and the programme is always clearly displayed for all children/parents/carers to see.
Resources such as sports equipment, arts and crafts materials, board games, books, dressing up clothes and pretend play equipment are readily available daily.
Occasionally, the children will enjoy an off-site activity, such as a trip to a local park, cinema, bowling etc. Details of these activities will be communicated to children/parents/carers in advance.
OSCARS also operate a holiday programme from St John’s RC Primary School, operating from 8.00am to 6.00pm. We operate during all major school holiday periods with the exception of the Christmas/New Year holiday when we are closed.
