Mercedes College Vacation Care Bookings Now Open

During the school holidays, Mercedes College offers a Vacation Care programme for children from Reception to Year 7.  Their activities are linked to the ‘My Time, Our Place’ National Quality Framework for School Age Care, and include a variety of fun activities.

The Vacation Care program is open to ALL children, including those not currently enrolled at Mercedes College.

Activities vary from Spring, Autumn, Winter and Summer and may include events such as gentle yoga sessions, animal capers or make your own bear experience. Excursions are also part of the program and visits to Hahndorf Farm Barn, AFL Max, a walk to Mitcham Village or going to see a movie may be part of the program.

Each activity/excursion has a learning outcome, which ranges from special awareness and the ability to move the body safely, to responding to diversity with respect, becoming socially responsible and showing respect for the environment.
