Nova Children’s House parents, please note that we do offer a holiday programme during the school holidays throughout the school year.

We also offer it on the last week after the primary closes at the end of the school year, and also the week before the primary resumes at the beginning of the new school year.

A separate notice will be sent out towards the end of each school term for those wanting their child to be part of some or all of those holiday days.
