Holiday Program

Canberra Girls Grammar Junior School offers a Holiday Program open to students enrolled in any primary school across the ACT. The Holiday Program provides children with a safe and nurturing environment, where they can engage in a range of experiences with their peers and supportive educators.

Junior School Holiday Program

Holiday Program operates from Monday to Friday during CGGS school holiday periods, from 8.00am until 6.00pm. The program does not operate on Public Holidays or CGGS Pupil Free days, or for a shutdown period over Christmas and New Year.

Children attending Holiday Program must provide their own food: recess, lunch and afternoon tea. As a nut aware centre, we ask that food containing nuts are not provided.

Enrolments for Holiday Program are accepted on a casual basis only. Bookings are final on the last day of Term prior to the holiday period. After this time, bookings are non-refundable and non-transferable. Any unattended days will be charged unless a medical certificate is provided within 2 weeks of the absence.

Fees (current for 2020 school year)

$100 per day (incursions and excursions included).

Holiday Program fees are paid in advance. An invoice will be sent on the Monday of the last week of term, advising families of the amount required to be paid. Alternatively you can pay by direct debit.

Holiday Program attendance is eligible for the Child Care Subsidy. Families must apply to Centrelink to ascertain their eligibility for CCS and provide the service with up to date CRN details, and confirm their child/ren’s enrolment on the MyGov website, before any subsidy can be applied. For more information, contact Family Assist on 13 61 50. All details must be completed by parents via Centrelink/Family Assist as we cannot speak to them on your behalf.

All bookings for Holiday Program are made online via the ‘Casual Booking Calendar’, through the My Family Lounge portal or My Family Lounge app.
