After School Care - SKIDS (Safe Kids In Daily Supervision) is available at our school for those who are interested. SKIDS offers before school care, after school care and a holiday programme.

If you are working (full time, part time, shift work, studying, receiving Child Disability Allowance or Sickness Benefit) you may qualify for a Work & Income NZ Oscar Subsidy and your child/ children can potentially come for FREE (conditions apply).

If you would like more information about SKIDS you can contact them on 022 567 5437 or 392 7874 or 0800 386 543 or email rush@skids.co.nz. 


Accidents, Sickness - If your child is sick or has an accident at school, we will make contact with you to arrange for your child to be collected. If we are unable to make contact, your child will be cared for in the sickbay, or in serious cases, will be taken to the local medical centre for necessary treatment.

Assemblies - School and syndicate assemblies are held every alternate Friday. Families are more than welcome to attend. See term updates for times and special assemblies.

Attendance - We encourage our students to attend regularly to consolidate their learning, and reward those who have full attendance for the year. If your child is sick or unable to attend for other reasons, please let us know as soon as possible. We monitor attendance, and work with Solomon Group Truancy Services to support student attendance.

Awhi Team - On a fortnightly basis our Awhi Team meet to discuss children requiring extra learning support. The team includes syndicate leaders, the RTLB (Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour), the SWIS (Social Worker in Schools) and school nurse. The team takes a holistic approach to learning and looks at ways that your child can be supported, health wise, socially as well as academically. Referrals to other supporting agencies can be accessed through their involvement.
