Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from out of zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. This will enable the Board of Trustees to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the school zone
A birth certificate and/or passport with a valid visa (to undertake education in New Zealand) need to be sighted in order to register your 5 year old child on the school roll. Parents complete an enrolment form giving contact details and general information about their child. They also sign an Internet Safety Contract and give permission for their child to go on trips around our locality.

The school runs a very successful transition to school programme called Stepping Stones. New entrants are invited to come along to school for a morning for ten weeks prior to starting at school.
