Do you need Before School Care for your child aged between 5 and 12? Does your child go to Blackheath Public School? Blackheath Out Of School Hours (BOOSH) will be providing this service for the first time. This is an affordable service for parents or guardians who have to rush off to work or early morning appointments.
BOOSH is open from 7am to 9am Monday to Friday during the school term. For children from other primary schools the service is available if an alternative pick up arrangement has been organised to deliver your child to school. You can book a permanent ($16/day) or casual ($19/day) position for your child. All children will be offered breakfast as part of the service.
You can find enrolment forms on our website http://banc.org.au/blackheath-out-of-school-hours-boosh/. For more information or to make a booking you can contact BOOSH on 4787 7150 or 0438 364 706.

Do you have concerns about the train timetable? Would you like to have your say? Then participate in our survey.
The NSW Government has announced they will be overhauling the Train Timetable. Planning the new timetable has started and it’s expected the new timetable will be introduced in late 2013.
Currently there is a more than 2 hour gap between trains west of Katoomba during weekdays. We want to make sure you have your say for a better train timetable for the Upper Blue Mountains. The following information from this survey will be used to lobby the state government.
Please click on the link here to download the survey if interested and then you can return it to the front desk of our office. Also feel free to pass the survey onto others.
This survey is being conducted by the Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre (BANC) and the Getting Around in Community (GAIC) sustainable transport project as part of a local campaign for better train services west of Katoomba. For inquiries call BANC on 4787 7770
