OSCAR (Out of School Care and Recreation)

Our programme has up to 40 children involved in after school care in the school term and up to 80 children in the school holidays.

This programme won the “Best Holiday Programme in Auckland” Award in 2012.

GST has been an OSCAR provider for the last ten years and one of the largest in the Mangere area. The programme accesses from 12 schools in the Mangere & Papatoetoe area.

Here at the Good Seed Trust we value children and our goal is helping children develop so they can stand tall in society with confidence.


We do this in a safe environment treating them with dignity and respect within a Christian context.

The programme is approved by Oranga Tamariki (Ministry for Children), which means that parents on low incomes can access the childcare subsidy. This is available for children 5-13 years old.
