Holiday Programme Information
Child/ren will need to bring a morning and afternoon tea snack and lunch everyday plus a hat and warm jacket for cooler days. Children are asked not to bring valuable belongings to CASPA/Papa Jacks such as toys, electronic devices, phones etc. CASPA and Papa Jacks will not accept responsibility for lose or damage of said items.
Sick children are asked, out of consideration for all, to be kept at home.
An additional $2.00 per child per day will be charged for late enrolments once the CASPA/Papa Jacks Holiday Programme has commenced.
A chartered bus will be used for all transportation. Occasionally trips are altered due to bad weather or circumstances beyond our control. CASPA/Papa Jacks accepts no responsibility for this but alternative activities will be arranged.
The CASPA Youth Holiday Programme may choose, where appropriate, to use public transport. This will be advised via the Holiday Programme Enrolment process.
I give consent for my child/ren to attend all the activities advertised as well as replacement activities that may be needed. This includes bussing and walking to venues and swimming. I will inform a CASPA/Papa Jacks Team Member prior to my child/ren attending an activity if I feel they may need special attention (e.g. can't swim, tends to wander, is extremely prone to sunburn, etc).
Bad behaviour will not be accepted at CASPA and Papa Jacks Programmes. If the child's behaviour is still a problem after warnings from the Supervisor, parents will be contacted to come and collect them. In this situation a refund will not be given.
Our staff are trained to deal with emergencies. In the case of a serious accident involving my child, I hereby give my permission for the CASPA/Papa Jacks Team to either call an ambulance or take my child to the nearest medical facility first then I will be notified. In a civil emergency the Team will remain at the centres until all children are collected.
I hereby give permission to the CASPA/Papa Jacks Team to administer medically prescribed medication to my child. Full information on dosages will be provided with the medication. I understand that the Team will formally record each time a medication is administered.
I will notify the CASPA/Papa Jacks Team if my child carries medication with them and will self-medicate when necessary. I understand that my child is to let staff know when they self-medicate so that a record may be kept and any further instructions followed.
Photographs of Children / Children's work
I acknowledge that photographs of my child or items of my child's work completed at the CASPA or Papa Jacks Programmes may be used at a later date for training, marketing and promotional purposes.
