When did we start?

Our OOSH centre was originally established in the Matthew Pearce Public School staffroom in 1988. It was then moved to an empty classroom in 1989. Due to a rapid increase in student numbers at the school, the after school care group vacated the classroom in 1995 and began to meet in the year 4 wet area/corridor. A portable building was purchased with the help of the local member Wayne Merton from Our Lady Of Lourdes, Seven Hills. We certainly have come a long way since then, now offering a full range of OOSH services and catering for up to 135 children per session for the students of Matthew Pearce Public School.
