After School Care

An After School Care programme operates in the hall, from 3pm-5:30pm, Monday to Friday. This year, Dedri Boyes, who has a lot of experience in managing and facilitating programmes of this nature, and Cole Boyes will be organising the programme. (Dedri is also a teacher assistant/librarian at Goldfields and knows the children well.)

The After School Care programme is not a continuation of a formal school day. It provides a supervised play environment for children, as they would have in the home, and has been developed to cater for children who need supervision after school due to parents work or other commitments.

The programme is structured to cater for the varying needs  and ages of the group. A family atmosphere is promoted and high standards of behaviour are expected.

The afternoon session commences with afternoon tea (children bring their own snacks and water bottle). This is followed by 20 minutes of  ‘quiet-time’ where children are supported to complete homework, read, or work on educational activities.

Children then select from a variety of activities – based in the hall or in the playground. These include a variety of art, craft, games and construction  activities.

The cost of programme:

3-5pm $8 per day per child

3-5:30pm $10 per day per child.

Older siblings (to 14 years) may also be accommodated in the programme.

Before School Care is available on a trial basis for Term 1, 2016, 7:50am-8:30am $3 per child per day.  

Bookings and payment must be made in advance: Phone or email Rebecca, Administration Officer 4450326,  office@goldfields.school.nz
