Auckland's best School Holiday Programmes! 


Every holidays, Parnell Trust's Programmes for Children create an amazing line-up of activities, adventures and special projects for the holidays. Your kids will have a blast with us!

Our Summer Fiesta 2018 Summer Holiday programme is online and taking bookings now!

Parents and kids love Parnell Trust's holiday programmes. Here's why:


1. More activity options every day for 5-14 year olds
Choose from up to three activities every day, priced from $55. You're sure to be something just perfect for your child*.

  • Club House: on-site fun at Parnell District School 
  • Adventure Seekers: exhilarating adventures out and about Auckland
  • On the Move: High energy activities, mainly offsite (age restrictions may apply)
  • Special Projects: Including exciting LEGO, technical and computer challenges (age restrictions apply)

*Children are placed in compatible age groups to ensure they have the best time in all our activities.


2. Longer hours:  7.30am - 6pm
Our longer hours are great for working parents - drop your children off at the location you've selected as early as 7.30am and collect them as late as 6pm.


3. The best care for your kids
We take the best care of your children. Most of our staff are trainee primary school teachers and all our programmes meet Department of Child, Youth and Family Services standards. We've had years of holiday programme experience and have well-developed systems and procedures in place to ensure excellent care. For all our activities and at all times we ensure there are staff qualified in First Aid treatment. Read what parents say about our holiday programmes.


4. Water Safety
On all our offsite programme activities we have a minimum of one staff member for every eight children. Whenever we take children anywhere near water - to pools or beaches - we increase our staff numbers so we have one member of staff for every five children.


Subsidies available
Parnell Trust's programmes are accredited by the Ministry of Social Development, so subsidies are available.


Sign up for our School Holiday newsletter and we'll let you know details of future school holiday programmes.
