No school, but the before and after care is open!

Share Canberra's trusted news:

IF the open schools/closed schools schmozzle this week wasn’t enough, how’s this for bewildering parents of school-age children.

Kate West, director of Children Youth & Family at Woden Community Service, has written to parents and carers in her area to say the Education Directorate had advised that all before and after-school care services will continue to operate as normal.

So, as ACT schools defiantly hunker down with pupil-free days to discourage student attendance, the Woden Community Service appears to have been compelled “to continue to provide essential services wherever possible”.

“This is so silly,” writes one Weston Creek mum. “Okay, so my kid can go to before and after-school care just not school!”
