Before school/After school/Holiday programmes

The George Street Normal School Board of Trustees invites children to attend Georgies before school, after school and holiday activity programmes.

Please note the following:

1. Georgies is under the direct control of George Street Normal School and provides the following services for the children attending our school:

  • Early Bird Georgies operates each school morning between 7.45am and 8.45am in Room 19. Children are supervised in a warm, safe environment where they can read, play or complete homework. The cost of this service is $5.00 per child per day arriving before 8.15am and $2.00 per child arriving after 8.15am. Younger children are delivered to their classrooms by the supervisor from 8.30am onwards.
  • Georgies - After School Activity Programme operates every school day from 3.00pm – 5.30pm. Senior Georgies (7-10 year olds) is based in Room 19 (senior side of our school). Junior Georgies (5 -7 year olds) is based in Room 22 (junior side of our school). Children are supervised in groups of 10 or less and involved in many different activities. These include sport, dance, games, homework, reading, art, crafts and cooking. Afternoon tea and the opportunity for supervised free play are also provided. Activities are prepared and managed by a team of tutors in addition to a supervisor. Numbers of children, age ranges and interest levels may determine what activities are organised on any particular day. The cost of Georgies after school activity programme is $16.00 per day, or $13.00 per day per pupil for two or more children from one family. Regular bookings on a term basis are preferred, however casual bookings may be accepted if 24 hours notice is given and space allows (numbers are limited).
  • Georgies - Holiday Activity Programmes operate during every school holiday break with the exception of the few days prior to and after Christmas and after New Year. A daily programme is published approximately four weeks prior to the beginning of each holiday break so that parents can book per hour at a cost of $5.50 (minimum four hours) or complete days (8.30 – 5.30pm) at a cost of $45.00 (a family discount applies).

2. Georgies before school, after school and holiday programmes are OSCAR accredited allowing parents to receive a subsidy from Work and Income New Zealand. Information about the subsidy is available from the school office.
