Outside School Hours Care


Blue card update

All members of the P&C Executive Committee, where the P&C Association operates an Outside School Hours Care facility, must hold a Business Blue Card (this does not include the executive members of an OSHC subcommittee).

The blue card business application form is different to the Volunteer blue card application form. The declaration on page 3 needs to be signed by a prescribed person i.e. Justice of the Peace, Commissioner for Declarations, Lawyer or Police Officer – Click here for the Blue Card Business Application Form. 

The fee for this blue card business application is $84.25, however Blue Card Services will waive this fee provided a ‘Waive Fee Statutory Declaration’ is provided together with the blue card business application form – Click here for the Waive Fee Statutory Declaration Form.

If your P&C Executive already have a Blue Card please contact our P&C Services Officer, Rachael, for further assistance. Phone 1800 218 228 or email
