 Selwyn House School Holiday Programme 2015 / 2016


Dear Parents
Summer Holiday Programme

A decision has been made to change the way in which Selwyn House School holiday programmes are delivered. This will take effect starting with our 2015 Christmas holiday programme. Our new provider, Safe Kids in Daily Supervision (sKids), are experts in the delivery of holiday programmes across New Zealand. This includes ten other schools in Canterbury and Kristin School in Auckland.

Their policy and procedures are exemplary and their staff are highly trained.

A communication from sKids about their online parent portal and booking system is attached for your information. The quality and range of activities will continue - regular users will experience the same level of high quality care and activities they did with our own in-house programmes. We will have a survey as well as the Summer Holiday Programme on the SH website shortly.

Our existing After School Care arrangements remain unchanged.

The move to an external provider has been prompted by our need to be fully compliant with recent changes to Health & Safety, and Vulnerable Children's legislation. This has placed major obligations on both the Trust Board and management for children's well-being and safety, and workplace safety, best met by a professional accredited supplier.

A heartfelt thank you to all Selwyn House staff who have contributed to the success of our holiday programmes over the past several years.

We welcome sKIDS into the school community, and look forward to supporting sKids as the Selwyn House tradition of providing high-quality school holiday programmes continues.


Kind regards
