FUN-A-RAMA St Damien’s
Catering for Children from both St Damien’s Catholic Primary and Ocean Road Primary aged between Kindy to Year 6
FUN-A-RAMA St Damiens strives to create and maintain a welcoming environment, where all students feel safe, encouraged and supported. We welcome all children and their families, to be a part of our innovative centre, make new friends, and most importantly enjoy themselves in the transition between school and home. Our focus revolves around the “My Time our Place” Curriculum, that implements play and leisure, that responds to the child’s needs, interests, and individualised choices.
Outcome 1: Children have a strong sense of identity
We believe each child is a unique individual, who will convey and provide our centre with diverse interests and talents to admire. We will work alongside our FUN-A-RAMA families’, to together create and implement meaningful and valued learning experiences for all those involved.
Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world
Our centre strives to implement sustainability through connecting students with the peers and the world around them. Through our showcase environmental centre, we are able to empower children to be mindful consumers and take higher roles of responsibility for their environment on a daily basis. Through different practices like our school chickens, worm farms and reusing different materials in art, children learn the importance of recycling and re using, in a fun, authentic way!
Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
As educators, we are proactive towards helping our children become the best version of themselves possible. Through working productively with our families, will allow us to stimulate growth and build towards progressing the wellbeing of each valued member of our FUN-A-RAMA family. We strive to create and maintain trusting relationships, and a safe environment that stimulates a sense of belonging for each and every child.
Outcome 4: Children are confident and involved learners
Through our supportive and encouraging environment, it allows children to be self-expressive and let their individuality shine. Through active involvement in play and leisure activities, it shapes children’s understandings of concepts, and the creative thinking and inquiry processes that are necessary for lifelong learning.
Outcome 5: Children are effective communicators
As a team, we are continually reflecting on our practice, to foster and embrace continuous improvement for our children and their families. Through our philosophy, we value our children to have a voice and express their values and ideas. St Damien’s FUN-A-RAMA is passionate about creating and maintain an atmosphere that fosters a sense of belonging, secured and encouragement for our children and their families, enforcing our number one rule, HAVE FUN!
