General Meeting December 2016

School Holiday Sessions – 10am to 2pm

The SDFA run activities during school holidays with each session usually running for four hours and are organised for parents to have some time out while their kids play with other kids. Dates for School Holiday Sessions’ are announced prior to the school holiday commencing. Bookings and payments for crèche are required in advance. The total number of children on each day is limited to around 16 (depending on the ages of children) which is decided by a ‘first in best dressed’ format. An event will be created for each session on this website with details and costs. However bookings are currently done via the SDFA facebook group (or you can phone the office 44215766).  Once on the Facebook event, you will need to comment with your child’s/ren’s name/s and age/s. All bookings are not final until payment has been made and cancellations without proper notice will incur a fee (details in the facebook event).
