After-Hours School Program

At Warrah we focus on building independence and social inclusion through a diverse range of fun and educational activities. Our after-hours school program caters for senior students aged 16 years who have a disability. We provide this service to students attending Warrah Specialist School and welcome senior students who attend other schools within the Hills District.

Our after school program provides transport to and from the service. The fee schedule will be discussed with families upon enrolment. For details on fees, please refer to the NDIS Price Guide 2019-2020.

The program operates two afternoons a week (Tuesday and Thursday) from 3.00pm – 6.00pm, during school terms. Further days will be provided, dependent on interest. We offer a range of fun and educational activities including cooking, art, music, outings, sports and fitness, gardening, and much more!

We have a dedicated team of staff who have:

  • Tertiary qualifications and/or experience in Education; Leisure and Recreation; Welfare; Disability or other related areas
  • Current First Aid certificates
  • A ‘Working with Children Check’ and other related legislative requirements
  • A licence to provide accessible transport to activities.

All of our activities are conducted in groups to encourage social interaction, team building and the formation of long-term friendships. With an emphasis on fun and creativity, our caring support workers empower participants to support each other to learn new life skills and enjoy new experiences for the first time. Life skills are tailored to meet the individual needs of participants and may include:

  • Making decisions
  • Everyday safety
  • Community engagement and socialisation
  • Planning and preparation
  • Handling money
  • Domestic and household tasks
  • Cooking and eating healthy foods

If requested 1:1 support can be provided, based on your NDIS package.
