oosc1Maungawhau School provides before & after school care as well as school holiday programmes to cater for working families.


Children have the right to relax and enjoy play out of school hours. We aim to provide a safe, secure, stimulating environment, which is significantly enhanced by competent staff providing a range of appropriate play and relaxation opportunities. The children and their interests are the centre of this process. We aim to empower the children, encourage them to make decisions and choices that will further their own development and benefit the rest of the children and staff as a team.

oosc2The Out of School Care (OSC) programme is operated by the school. Any queries or concerns should be raised with:

OSC Manager: Natalie Hoo
ph 021 950 489

To contact the OSC staff please phone 09 6388 829 (dial ext. 719 when calling out of school hours) or email oscar@maungawhau.school.nz


We offer care during school holidays. A brochure is produced prior to each holiday period detailing dates the programme is offered and activities planned for each day.

The holiday programme is made up of days with activities within the school grounds, trips to various venues and visitors to the school. Bookings are essential on the days that trips are offered. Each day is themed and related to the activities offered eg. Ten Pin Bowling, Wild Wheels and Creative Cooking.
