& Holiday Programme
370 Innes Road, Mairehau

Our Out of School Care and Recreation (OSCAR) Programme (which includes our Before and After School Programme) is committed to providing primary school children and their families in the Mairehau and St Albans community with a safe and fun environment to develop, grow and reach towards their full potential.
We offer care for students from the following schools:

  • Mairehau Primary
  • St Francis of Assisi School
  • St Albans Catholic Primary
  • St Albans Primary
  • Ouruhia School (after school care only)


We are based at the following two schools 


The programme is structured and includes planned games and activities for each session. The children also have use of the playgrounds. All activities are well supervised whether indoors or outdoors, and a quiet rest place is also available for children.

Afternoon tea is provided, and usually consists of sandwiches, fruit and a drink.

A typical day involves having afternoon tea when the children arrive, then if it is fine we facilitate outdoor games, and they can also play on the playground. If the weather is not fine we set up crafts and games for the children to do inside.
