The Board of Trustees, in accordance with some parents’ wishes, gives time for religious instruction to be taught once a week over one term. This is coordinated by the Combined Parishes of Waikanae. Instructional material is published by the Combined Education Commission and is available for parents to view by arrangement. Children who wish to participate must ‘opt in’ to the programme. This privilege is open to all Yr 1 to Yr 6 students. The school is officially closed for this time as per the Education Act.
