Aftercare Centre

Introduction

The Hatfield Christian School Aftercare Centre was started in 1995, ten years after the school started. The Centre endeavours to serve parents whose children need supervision and care after their normal school day. The Centre uses the same discipline, training and correction programme followed by the school. Parents and are advised whenever the child has been counselled, corrected and trained in God’s ways.

Homework

Homework is supervised at the Aftercare Centre. It remains a parental responsibility and parents are to check and sign the Diary daily. Any homework not completed at the Centre needs to be done at home.

Lunch

A balanced cooked lunch is provided daily and fun lunches are provided on Fridays. Juice and biscuits are provided at mid-afternoon, daily. It is recommended for those children who will be staying after 16h00, that they bring along an extra snack/fruit to sustain them.

Extra-Murals

Please advise via the Diary, each term, which extra-murals your child will be doing at school and please send the appropriate attire. The pupils will be escorted to and from the venue for school extra-murals. Children are expected to report to the Centre before going to matches or extra-murals, so that they can be accounted for and also so that they can be given lunch.

Uniform

Students are to wear school uniform during school hours and appropriate civilian clothing at the Aftercare Centre.

Staffing

The staff:pupil ratio is 1:12 in the homework supervision class and on the playground.
