Use of School Hall

General Information

Enquiries for the hall should be made to Kate Thomson. Phone 332-6121 ext 701 or email: admin@stmartins.school.nz

St Martins School will have priority at all times but we will endeavour to give reasonable notice of any change to regular bookings and arrange alternative arrangements if possible.

The school and grounds is a “Smoke Free” zone.

Keys will be issued from the School Office during school hours 8.30am to 3.30pm. Our Caretaker will show you the alarm system and give you any other information as required. Alarms being set are the responsibility of the Hirer. Any call out charge will be the responsibility of the Hirer.

The Caretaker will check the facilities after use and will inform the hirer if any damage has occurred. Minor damage will be the responsibility of the hirer and must be paid within 30 days. If there is major damage which requires an insurance claim the hirer will be liable to pay the excess.

Kitchen facilities in the hall are available if required. The cleaning of the kitchen area must be completed to a high standard (how it was found). The kitchen facilities are basic (oven, fridge, zip) and you would need to supply your own crockery and cutlery. Any items stored in the kitchen by the school or after school programme are not to be used by the Hirer.

The hall is not available for evening parties such as 21st birthdays etc and other parties with bands or DJ’s due to consideration for our close neighbours.

Please note that our school hall is booked by an after school programme during the term time from 3pm to 6pm each school day so is not available for use at this time.
