We require all 2024 Enrolments, so that we can work out our staffing allocation with the Ministry of Education. We encourage parents to enrol their child(ren) when they turn four years old.  Once enrolled, you will be able to keep up to date with what’s happening at our school through the our newsletter.  Early enrolment also helps us to plan the number of New Entrant rooms we need throughout the year.

All New Entrants can come for school visits to help them transition to school.  Please contact the school to arrange the visits, which will take place at agreed times.

The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.
