Quick intro to our staff

My name is Robert Vastag, I am the Supervisor Of School’s Out at Kiwicare Avondale.  I enjoy working with children in the areas of carpentry, sport, music, history, geography, computing and sports and assist the children with their language development, literacy and oral and written expression as in addition to English I speak German, Hungarian and Italian.

Our staff are very passionate about children and make it their daily goal to encourage the children to enjoy the environment and to develop their skills, to have fun and relax. We believe that helping and guiding the children is vital and giving them every opportunity possible to further their innate learning abilities and thus develop their potential to the fullest in their future lives. Together with Michael Mitchell, who brings a strong background of different art & craft activities, we provide a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities.

What do we offer to the children in our centre?

We offer a quality after school care and holiday programme for children children aged 5-13 years  attending primary school who require care before school, after school and in the school holidays usually while their caregivers/parents are at work .  We provide activities to meet the interests and capabilities of the children in our care in a safe, positive, fun and happy environment in which to grow and have a whole heap of fun!

Pen Paling Our OSCAR children have a great hobby, pen pals! We have exchanged details with children in Scotland and have had letters from them about their lives in Kirriemuir, Scotland. Kirriemuir is the birthplace of JM Barrie who wrote the classic, Peter Pan - wow!

Hand Print Butterfly
As part of our Craft activities the children in the OSCAR programme created ‘Hand Print Butterflies’ and submitted them in an OSCAR Quick Craft Challenge.
The craft created is now available on the OSCAR NZ site available for all to see, alongside all the other quick craft ideas submitted by other programmes too.
