The Y Out of School Hours Care

We would like to sincerely thank our outgoing supervisor Beth for the thoughtful care she has shown our students and the positive relationships she has established and maintained with families and our school. The demands of Beth’s tertiary studies have meant that she can no longer commit to the hours required to coordinate our OSHC service. We will miss her, but wish her every success with the remainder of her Social Work studies.

We extend a warm welcome to The Y’s new supervisor Katie. Please see the community news below for more information.

The School Banking

Here at Kapinara we participate in the Commonwealth Bank School Banking Program.  The program offers students a fun and interactive way to save money.   School banking day is Wednesday morning from 8.30am downstairs where the uniform shop is.   To get involved in the program your child needs to have a CBA Youth saver account.  This can be done online by visiting and click on the ‘Open Now’ link to open the Youthsaver account.  Once you have received your welcome pack (takes about 5 days) you can start depositing straight away.  (Please note: When you wish to make your first withdrawal from any CBA branch, you will need to provide your child’s birth certificate and drivers licence for identification)

If your child has an existing Youthsaver account they can start banking straight away.  Just bring their account details on School banking day.

For every 10 deposits made, students can redeem a reward item.  Current rewards available include handballs, textas, key rings, scratch cards, soccer ball and many more. By making regular weekly deposits, not only does your child benefit but the school also receives a commission.

For students already participating in the program, please remember to come every Wednesday to save your pennies!
Please email the school banking coordinator at or visit the school website for more information
