Hi All Parents/Caregivers and Students

I would like to invite all school students to our School Holiday Program running from the 19th to the 30th of April

Bookings are essential for all activity’s and must be in before the 15th of April, no bookings will be accepted after this date. Book online and pay for your child to be able to come. if you do not book in through this sight you will not be able to attend. All payments will be paid online.

To book into the school holiday program. https://www.trybooking.co.nz/GUJ

Please be aware of a booking fee when booking.

Please be aware times can vary depending on the activity. Times are different depending where you are based so please check the right time for your child. All pick up and drop off spots can be arranged if the activity is closer to your home.

Transport: There will be a van and car available from south to transport your children. There is north transport available if we have enough numbers then we will drive up. If these get full then you may have to transport your own child.

Volunteer helpers are a must on most activity’s due to ratios. We need more helpers on the water days and the Amazing race day to make these possible. If each adult can help once over the two weeks it would be greatly appreciated. If you are available please let me know. If we do not have enough parent help then we will not be able to run some activity’s.

Please be sure to read the bring list as it is important your child has most of these items for the day and will not be able to participate if they do not.
