Rose Park Primary School are pleased to offer a dedicated OSHC service from Wednesday 15th November 2018.

Our services will include; Before School, After School and Vacation Care.

Our new service will be managed by our Director, Billy Graves, as well as a team of carefully selected and dedicated staff who will be recruited prior to our opening day.

Our staff team will initially consist of SSOs and teachers from Rose Park Primary School as well as staff members who have worked with Billy in previous services. This will give a smooth transition for our children with staff they are familiar with.

Our mission is to always recruit high quality staff at all times. Staff members will be a range of experienced staff who have worked in high quality services, have teaching backgrounds, or are current Uni SA students studying a Bachelor of Education.

Billy has a wealth of experience managing successful OSHC services over the last 10 years and has been working in schools or kindergartens since the year 2000, both in Australia and for Local Government in the UK. We recently recruited Billy from St Michael’s College in Beverley where he introduced a new Before School Care, and Vacation Care service at the college.

Billy is also a professionally qualified soccer coach with over 20 years’ experience coaching junior and senior sides here and in the UK, and is the current technical director of coaching at Modbury Vista in the local state league. Billy is keen to offer his support to a soccer program here at Rose Park Primary School in 2019.

Billy is always available to chat to parents and answer any questions you may have.

Enrolment forms are now available for you to register your intent to use our new service.
