Active After School Program

Community / Active After School Program

John Butler Primary College have provided an After School Activities Program each academic year since opening in 2014. We have provided a variety of different programs to enrich our students learning and structure them to include activities that contain both physical and mental stimulation. Our staff and community members each year offer their time, commitment and expertise to operate these programs.

These programs are free of charge for all families; however we do require students to bring a water bottle containing water.  Students will be involved in supervised activities until 3:30pm. Those doing physical activities need to come dressed in appropriate footwear. At the conclusion of each session we require you to collect your child from their chosen activity or give consent for your child to walk home.

We are keen to have parents involved in coaching and supporting these activities. Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering.  If you have any questions regarding the program please contact Mr Lewis on 9561 4300 or 0407 057 100.
