As our school roll grows we are squeezed for space for
additional programmes like After School Club to operate at
our school. Places are limited because of space constraints
and we are unable to take any further bookings at this
stage. We know this is challenging for our families looking
for out of school care and we urge new families to seek
alternative care arrangements if possible.
An After School Care programme operates in Room 9, from 3.pm-5:30.pm, Monday to Friday. Dedri Boyes, who has a lot of experience in managing and facilitating programmes of this nature (Dedri is also a teacher assistant/librarian at Goldfields and knows the children well) and Sarah Reihana (Sarah also a teacher assistant at Goldfields and knows the children well) will be organising the programme.
Bookings for 2022 must be made in advance using these electronic forms;
We recommend confirming casual bookings by Monday each week: email email@example.com or text the team on 027 2123161 (please allow plenty of time for the team to reply as they are in class during the day).
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 behavior 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 inside or in the playground. These include a variety of art, craft, games and construction activities.
The cost of programme:
8-8.30.am Before School Care – $5 per morning
3-5.pm $10 per day per child
3-5:30.pm $12 per day per child
Payment for this service will be invoiced and can be paid online to account;
02 0920 0058723 25 or through the school office.
Older siblings (to 14 years) may also be accommodated in the programme.
