Stars Primary (Yr 1–6)

We would like to invite your children to our Stars Primary Holiday Programme. This programme is for primary-aged children (Years 1 to 6) to gather together, have fun, and learn in a safe environment. This programme will be held at 33 Beale Street, Hamilton East, Hamilton (map here).

Stars is a Christian-based holiday programme. The overall theme for the October programme is ‘I Am Awesomely and Wonderfully Made’. We will impress the children with how God created man and takes care of man. We will introduce the story of Noah.

During this programme, the children will be involved in lots of activities which will encourage their learning, and will interact with other children and make new friends.

The daily activities will include singing, stories, craft, games, and other interactive activities.

We are happy to provide afternoon tea. However, please provide a packed morning tea and lunch for your children.

The programme runs from 9:30am–3:00pm from Monday 2 October to Friday 6 October. Registration will be at 33 Beale Street, Hamilton East and will open at 9:00am.

Children need to be enrolled in the programme by Friday 22 September 2017.  A late enrolment fee of $20 will be charged for those who enrol after the deadline. We will NOT accept any enrolments on the day the programme starts. We may also close the registration before 22 September if the number is full.

The programme is OSCAR approved and subsidies to cover the fees are available from Work and Income. It is important to apply for the OSCAR Subsidy before the holiday programme starts. The application form is available at the New Zealand Training Centre reception at 33 Beale Street, Hamilton East. Please contact us if you would like to apply for a subsidy.
