Tukaha Out of School Programme

We are delighted to announce that Stacey and Michaela Clyde have taken over the licence for our after school care programme, as of the beginning of Term 3.

    We call people by proper names.

The Board of Trustees meets monthly. Board meetings are open and parents and caregivers are welcome to attend. A staff representative is elected to the Board of Trustees by the staff.


Year 7 and 8 children are bused off-site once a week for Technicraft training. This is a compulsory part of the curriculum. The Board of Trustees receives a direct grant for a portion of the costs of this programme. There is a charge to parents for the consumable items used in this programme. The actual costing of the programme is calculated by the Centre providing the service.


As the school does not have a pool, we use the facilities at Berhampore School (junior classes) and Kilbirnie Aquatic Centre (senior classes). A swimming programme is scheduled for at least one teaching block per year and the children will be bused to the pool. The details of the swimming programme will be published in a newsletter at the appropriate time.
Swimming is a compulsory part of the physical education programme and all children are expected to participate.
