At OSHC the students can enjoy a wide range of outdoor play areas. The playground is the most popular with students who love to challenge themselves with equipment such as the monkey bars and climbing walls. It is amazing to see students of all age groups come together and enjoy such an incredible outdoor play area. Students are also given the option of playing just outside the OSHC Centre on the cloister grass area. Students enjoy using some gymnastics mats, skipping ropes, cones, balls and much more equipment on offer at OSHC. Educators also organize group games to be played such as all-over red rover and four corners. Picnic rugs have been put out for the students who wish to just relax with friends or play board games outside. Some days at OSHC we like to utilize the gym and its equipment. Especially on rainy or extremely hot days, the gym is perfect for the students to still be active while keeping cool and dry. Many students enjoy the basketball hoops and using the equipment available to facilitate imaginary play. Many students also take advantage of the two large courts to kick a football around with their peers. Lastly, during snack the students enjoy using the courtyard and handball courts. Handballs are a very popular piece of equipment at OSHC and encourage students of all age groups to play with one another. For students who want to explore their creativity, chalk is also used for drawing on the courtyard pavement for the whole school to enjoy.
