There are two 'After-School Programmes' available to students. One is run by the YMCA and takes place on the school site. Several members of school staff work in the programme although it is not part of the school day or part of their teaching contract with the Ministry. The other Programme is run by a local Church. Children are collected from their classrooms and escorted to the Programme. If parents would like more information on either of these Programmes, please contact the School Office.
