After School Classes

Classes start on Monday 11th of February 2019.

Please note:

  • if you are enrolling more than one child online, you must create an individual shopping cart for each child.
  • we cannot accept an enrolment or reserve a place without full payment.

General Information

Welcome to our Children’s After School Music and Leisure classes.  Administered by Auckland Normal Intermediate School, these classes offer your children a wealth of enjoyable, educational and challenging activities for after school participation.

The programme is aimed at 6 –13 year old primary school students from our local community.  It is subsidised by the Ministry of Education and follows New Zealand curriculum guidelines.

Tutors

Our tutors are well qualified to meet your child’s needs.  While Auckland Normal Intermediate employs the tutors they are not necessarily teachers at ANI. Many come from other occupations and are experts in their field. As professionals they take their role seriously and work hard to ensure programmes are taught to a high standard.  Please feel free to make contact with them after class or by email.  We request that parents do not wait in classrooms during lessons as this can make some children nervous.

Group Tuition

Lessons are taught in groups which, not only lowers the cost of tuition but also provides a supportive framework for students as they learn together.  The size of the class will vary between 6 and 10 students for a music class or between 8 and 15 students depending on the type of leisure class.

Parents Role

It is vital that parents work in partnership with the tutor.  Encouragement at home to do follow up or practise activities is necessary.  Attendance at lessons is also important, so please ensure your children turn up on time and with the correct equipment.  Students must also be collected no later than five minutes after the class finishes. There is no before class or after class supervision available, so please ensure that you are waiting outside your child’s class ready to pick them up at the end of the lesson.

Stationery and Instrument Hire

Your tutor will advise you if any text books or music manuals are required for your class.  These along with instruments can be purchased/hired from a local music store.

Transfers

Make sure you carefully pick which after school class you would like to take. Because we will not be able to complete any transfer’s or changes of classes after the second week of each term. If you wish to transfer before this time, you will incur an administration fee of $10.

Programme Overview

If you require additional information about a particular class, please call the ANI office on 630 1109.  Our reception staff and/or the tutor are here to assist in any way they can.
