Community connection in Cooma 

The team at our out-of-school-hours care service at Cooma Public School has been focused on embedding community within the centre and increasing children’s feelings of connection and belonging.

They have recently implemented a community excursion project, where the children go out into the local community to explore and undertake various activities. These excursions are designed to build on the existing curriculum focus topics like sustainability, physical development and academic development, while building community connections. 

Each week, the children at Cooma Public OSHC visit: 

  • Cooma Library to participate in Lego building, reading and borrowing books
  •  Cooma Showground to take part in ball sports, running races, touch football and more 
  • Cooma Community Gardens, where they have their own garden plot to grow and harvest produce, a worm farm and composting bin, an insect hotel and native bird feeding station.
