After school care

The Thorndon After School Care (TASC) programme runs every school day from 3:00pm until 6:00pm. On days when the school closes early the programme generally runs from the earlier time of closure. 

If there are any changes to this schedule, parents will be notified by email

The programme has never been seen as an extension of school and for this reason the activities are not academic. There is a lot of creative activity and outside play. 

Our belief has always been that children have been at school for 6 hours or more and that, while they might still be on the school grounds, they should be engaged in something different from their school programme.

As well as having supervised activities, children are provided an afternoon tea. They are also able to make use of school sports equipment.

The programme is staffed at a ratio of 1 supervisor to 10 children.



Costs are $17 per day or $85 per week for the full week for enrolled students. 

Casual students are charged $20 per day.

There is a $10 late fee if children are picked up between 6:00 and 6:15pm, plus $1 per minute every minute after 6:15pm.

Payment for After School Care is made following monthly invoice from the school.


Please make sure to read the following conditions, and if you have any questions, please contact the school office for more information.

School Holiday Programme

A school holiday programme may be run from the school during the four main holiday breaks though we encourage parents to enrol children in holiday activities away from the school.

There may also, from time to time, be a number of other after school and holiday activities on offer. These include art, music and language classes and details will be given in the newsletter.
