All children are welcome to join the After School Fun Club (ASFC) Holiday Programme from all Primary Schools. We endeavour to make them feel welcome and we support them to settle in quickly and make new friends. Every day the Programme provides games, art, sports and special trips by bus away from the base. Parents are welcome to drive into the school ground to park their car. Parent / caregiver are responsible to drop off child(ren) to the base venue by latest 9am. This enables the programme / outing to run smoothly. Each day children need to be signed in and out by an adult at the attendance register.
WHAT TO BRING DAILY:
Parents / caregivers are responsible to ensure that their child will be provided with morning tea, lunch, water bottle, proper footwear, jacket or jersey, sunhat and sunblock. Please ensure that all items are named.
WHAT TO KEEP AT HOME:
Anything you and your child considers valuable (toys, mobile phones). We do not accept responsibility for any loss or damage of private toys or any other personal items.
ASFC aims to provide a harmonious and safe environment for the children in our care. In return children are expected to follow the ASFC behaviour rules. They are based under the umbrella of the four R’s and are:
Respect the environment
Take Responsibility for your actions
Unacceptable behaviour may revoke the right of attendance at the discretion of staff.
