Outside of School Hours Care

The St Mary’s College Outside of School Hours Care (OSHC) program is run by CatholicCare and caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 6 needing care before school from 7.00am or after school until 6.00pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).

CatholicCare promotes values consistent with catholic teachings under the auspices of the Catholic Archdiocese of Hobart. They provide quality care for children in a safe, supportive, nurturing environment for school-aged children. The OSHC program aims to capture children’s likes, interests and hobbies, develops children’s potential and enables children to achieve independence.

The service can be used for frequent, occasional or emergency care. Child Care Benefit is available if your child is registered with Centrelink.

Holiday care

Holiday care is provided from 8.00am to 6.00pm Mondays to Fridays during all school holidays except between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, and on public holidays. We are also open on any student free days planned by the College.

Groving our love of learning

St Mary's College is located on the traditional lands of the muwinina people of the South East Nation. We acknowledge and deeply respect the palawa people, the Tasmanian Aboriginal Community, and all Elders past and present. We are committed to learning alongside our students and community in this place, nipaluna, and support the continued sharing of knowledge and culture.
