You can enrol your child any time before they turn five. It is helpful for planning and transition processes if you have enrolled them at least two years before they turn five. It is best if you ring the school to make an appointment with our principal, Mr Dee Luckin to discuss enrolment.
We are required prior to starting school to sight and take a copy of the birth certificate and a record of vaccinations; schools are required to collect vaccination information for the Ministry of Health. If your child was not born in New Zealand we also need to sight and copy passport documentation.
We have at least two new entrant classes. Children are placed into one of these on entry to the school. Dependent on when their birthday falls, they may remain in these classes for the year or move to a junior class if further new entrant numbers require. Transition to the next class level is managed by the teachers and you will be consulted in process.
Five year olds starting school in the first term are classified as Year 1 and will be Year 2 in the following year. Children starting in term three (July) and term four are classified as Year 0 and will be Year 1 in the following year.
