After School Care
The ASB After School Club is available each day from when school finishes until 6pm for children aged 5-14 years. Now with Wifi available, children are able to complete any online homework if needed. The After School Club is staffed on a 1:10 ratio, and an afternoon tea snack is provided each day.
When students need to be on medication the class teacher should be informed. Parents whose children are need to take medication during school hours are required to inform the office secretary so that you can sign a consent form. All medical supplies will be kept in a secure place.
Quality food enhances your child’s learning potential. For this reason, we discourage sweets, fizzy drinks and highly coloured and flavoured snack foods at school.
Children must wear a school hat at all times they are outside during terms 1 and 4. This includes coming to and from school. An official school bucket style may be ordered from NZ Uniforms. Children without a hat will be required to stay in the shade areas during breaks and will be unable to participate in outside activities.
In the rare case of serious accidents or head injuries, every effort will be made to contact parents / caregivers immediately. We need to be informed of any changes to your phone number or address. In the case of an emergency your child will be taken directly to hospital.
St Joseph’s is a ‘Litter Free’ school. This means that litter produced by children’s morning tea and lunches is put back into their lunch boxes, along with any uneaten food, and taken home. Please ensure your child brings a lunch box to school each day to assist us with this.
Please ensure your child’s clothing is named. In the event that items of school uniform have gone missing, students are encouraged to look in the lost property box. This can be found in the corridor outside Room 4 – or check with our caretaker – Seti.
There is a school lunch service every Monday. An order form will come home with your child every Friday. The completed order form along with the correct money need to be returned to the office on Monday morning before 8.55am. Lunches are delivered to the classrooms at lunchtime.
Smoke Free Environment
