New Entrant Enrolments
Children may commence school on or after their fifth birthday. Your child’s Birth Certificate must be shown on enrolment to verify their date of birth and their eligibility to enrol in a New Zealand school as a domestic student. Please also bring with you your child’s Immunisation Certificate. If you live in our home zone you will need to bring a utility account to confirm that you live in zone (eg a property/rental agreement, power or telephone account with your name & address on it). You are asked to make an appointment with the Principal to enrol children at least a month prior to their fifth birthday. It is usual for children to be present at enrolment time.
