After School Care
St Columba’s families who require After School Care can access the service through the Ballarat YMCA.
The After School Care Program is located at Our Lady Help of Christians Primary School (OLHC), Wendouree in the Mercy Performing Arts Centre and is open to all children in years Prep-6.
Casual bookings are received and permanent bookings can also be made.
St Columba’s children enrolled in the program, wait with the teacher on duty at the Howard St entrance. The teacher supervises the children to board the mini bus that will take them up to OLHC. Children are picked up from OLHC by their parents/carers.
