Hanwood Vacation Care

First day of Hanwood vacation care went off with a bang! 🎉 The children went on their first excursion to Hunky Dory Play Centre! For a bit of down time the kids enjoyed some board games and drawing.

Camden Vacation Care

Lots of colour fun at Camden ASPIRE OSHC! The children had lots of fun participating in the colour run and getting their hair coloured as well as creating their very own unique tie dye piece. 


Over the past two weeks at Aspire OSHC St John’s the year 5 seniors and Miss Sarah have been very busy using their creative skills to create unique one of a kind tie dye t-shirts, socks, tote bags and hair scrunchies. Children used their iPads to research which tie dye technique they wanted to do and then followed the tutorial on how to do so, the most popular techniques were ‘bullseye and spiral swirl’ they were the most effective. Everyone’s clothing, tote bags and hair ties turned out amazing, so bright and vibrant. Children displayed a sense of self pride and achievement as they held up their creations once they were dry. 

Head over to our Facebook or Instagram page to see all of the process and the amazing results.

The bin is located at Camden ASPIRE OSHC. However, all services and families are encouraged to donate with service managers delivering the items to Camden.

First week of vacation care program at Nowra

We had our first ever vacation care program kick off at Nowra these July school holidays. This week we took part in many NAIDOC celebrations. On Tuesday we participated in a Yarning circle - a discussion about what Acknowledgment of Country means. We are developing our very own Nowra Acknowledgment of Country and we included the children in the developing of this. The children have Ochre face painting from our very own educator Marle. We finished off the week with a trip to the local cinema to see the Minions - Rose of Gru. 


Camden | Thursday 07/07/2022

Today was filled with all types of art and craft! Canvas painting, oil pastels, clay, drawing and water colour. 

Stars and Sounds Bambora Tour 

A unique and engaging experience supporting NAIDOC. 

Campbelltown | Tuesday 05/07/2022 

Tuesday afternoon Karl from Stars and Sounds Bambora Tours came to aspire to share stories about his Indigenous life growing up till now. Karl told the Aspire children a Dreamtime story he then allowed the children to come up and put their ear to the end of the didgeridoo, to see if they hear anything. Karl describe the nose as a bee buzzing, he told the children that they may also hear other different sounds and that the children did.

Children were intrigued and interested in todays incursion. They learnt how to say several new words and played a game where Karl would make the sound of an animal into the didgeridoo and they had to guess which Australia animal it was. Aspire children did really well at this game.

Karl used Ochre to paint the children’s faces. Karl informed the children and educators that females have 6 circles on their face 3 above their right eye and 3 below their left eye in a diagonal. Males have lines painted down their forehead/nose , chin and 3 on lines on each cheek.

After Karl had painted the children’s faces he picked two children boy and girl to then paint his face. All children gathered around Karl to watch.
