Pupil Free days run on demand and usually happen once a term. On these days, the Out of School Hours Program offers a program with many and varied activities to keep the children entertained. The program operates from 7.15 am to 6.30 pm.

As the school is closed on these days, we have full access to all the school’s facilities. These days are a lot of fun and are fully supervised.


Syndal South Primary School runs a School Holiday Program in Terms 1, 2, 3 and 4 based on demand and approval from School Council. The Program is a fortnight of organised fun with activities planned for the morning and afternoon sessions and some great incursions and excursions. There is also a Holiday Program during the summer break for two weeks prior to the start of Term 1.


Full Day: $50.00 plus activity costs which range from $5.00 to $15.00. Payments can be made with cash, credit card and cheque or by our preferred method of payment idebit.

All programs are approved for the Child Care Subsidy. If you require assistance with claiming for the subsidy you can contact Centrelink or use your Centrelink Online Account via myGov.
