Lake Boga Primary School OSHC has been established with the aim of providing High Quality Education and Care within the requirements of the National Quality Framework, National Law and the My Time, Our Place Framework, meeting the needs of children and families within our school and the wider Lake Boga community.
As a part of the Lake Boga Educational Hub, we believe in building an inclusive learning community and are committed to ensuring the unique values and beliefs of each child and family are recognised and respected without discrimination or bias. We appreciate the diversity of the school community, with every child given the opportunity to succeed regardless of their circumstance, cultural background or ability. We recognise the traditional custodians of the land in which our service operates, the Wamba Wamba people, and promise to continue fostering respect for all indigenous cultures.
A profound partnership built upon collaboration, respect and strong communication forms basis for the continuity of care between Lake Boga Primary School, OSHC and the families accessing our service. We believe an integrated curriculum prevents children from visualising the world as fragmented and therefore provide an open and welcoming environment where all families are encouraged to participate in and contribute to the learning and development of our service.
Striving for active engagement, children’s interests, instincts and inquiries are utilised as the driving force of our programs at Lake Boga PS OSHC with educators aiming to facilitate meaningful connections through authentic and dynamic opportunities. The multifaceted educational environment provided endeavours to inspire and drive this curiosity in learning, whilst offering choice of participation in a range of spontaneous play and leisure activities. With children being viewed as capable learners and decision makers, educators collaborate to extend life skills and develop dispositions towards citizenship.
Through implementing community participation in our programs, children are enriched in social experience and develop understanding of wider society. We endeavour to guide student knowledge, appreciation and respect of the natural environment, emphasising the interdependence between people, plants, animals and land. With the utilisation of the schools vegetable gardens, orchard and chook yards providing children with the opportunity to develop skills in sustainable practice and social responsibility.
Driven by our commitment to continuous quality improvement, educators engage in critically reflective practice and continually seek to build their own professional knowledge. Having high expectations of both the children within our programs and ourselves as educators means our philosophy is perpetually evolving to meet the current needs, values, beliefs, teaching strategies and best practice principles of our service.
To be the best that we can be.
