After school from 2.55 pm until 5.30pm; $20 per afternoon including afternoon tea.

Our  ‘no show’ fee when child/ren are booked into an after-school session, and fail to turn up without prior notification before 2pm on the OSCAR mobile 021 296 4829 (a text message is fine), is $10 per child.  

The holiday programme (operating Monday – Friday 8.00am until 5.30pm) is $50 on Mondays,            Tuesdays, and Thursdays.  Our trip days on Wednesdays and Fridays cost $60, to help cover the costs involved in taking the children out and about in our local environment.  WINZ subsidies are available for eligible families.

Our ‘no show’ fee when children are booked into the Holiday Programme  is $25 (or $30 on trip days) per child.  Advice of cancellation  must be directed to the Programme Manager on OSCAR mobile 021 296 4829 (a text message is fine)  before 8.00am 24 hours in advance of your original holiday programme booking.  For example, if your child is booked in on a Wednesday and you need to cancel, you must send a text message to the OSCAR mobile 021 296 4829 by, at the latest, 8.00am on the Tuesday morning. The more notice that you can give us, the better, as it allows us to offer spaces to other families who wish their children to attend.

If anyone has any questions or queries about our fees and penalties, please do not hesitate to contact the  OSCAR Programme Manager, Shelley Robinson on  021 296 4829 or email oscar@riverview.school.nz.      Remember: when you change your plans, text the OSCAR mobile, especially in the school holidays when the school office is shut!
