Claire Jeffries’ introduction

Hello everyone!
I was delighted to join the team at Parnell District School at the beginning of 2019, as our Education Programme Coordinator. I set up our C4 After School Care programme which runs Before School Care, After School Care and Holiday Programmes, as well as coordinating all extra-curricular activities held on site.

This is a very exciting new venture for Parnell District School and by running the programmes in-house, we can ensure that all your children’s individual needs are met.

Please do come and see me anytime if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. I can be contacted on or drop by the hall to see me.

For a little about me… I am originally from Wellington where I trained as a nurse after leaving school. I worked as a pharmaceutical representative before having my three children who are now young adults. For the last 12 years I worked at Saint Kentigern Boys’ School as the Hospitality Functions Manager so I am very comfortable working in a school environment. As a mother myself I know the importance of high quality out of school care.

My vision is to ensure your children are well cared for in a safe & supportive environment, have a nutritious breakfast or afternoon tea, complete assigned homework and have time to relax & play.

I look forward to meeting you all and being part of this wonderful community.
