Enrolling with us
Who can enrol
Most of the schools in North Canterbury have an enrolment scheme and this determines which school you can enrol with, based on your home address. Have a look at the map on our in zone declaration form on the right to see if you are within our home zone. Agreeing to the declaration on our enrolment form, and providing proof of address to us prior to your child starting school are a requirement upon enrolling.
When to enrol
Ideally at least a term before your child is due to start school, or as soon as you know you are moving to an address within our home zone.
How to enrol
Phone the school and make an appointment to meet with the Principal or our Deputy Principal - if you have children already attending our school this meeting is optional.
Prior to coming along to the appointment you need to complete our online enrolment form (the green box to the right hand side) - we need separate form for each of your children. If you are unable to complete it prior to the enrolment meeting, please arrive 15 minutes early and you can complete it on an iPad here.
It's a good idea to bring your child with you to this meeting, as they will get a chance to have a look around the school too.
What happens next
At the meeting we will tell you about our school and how we do things. We'll ask questions about your child and you can ask any questions you have too. You'll go for a walk around the school, and will get to have a look at the space your child will be learning in, and meet some of the teachers. If your child is a new entrant, you can also discuss the Four Year Old Programme with the new entrant teacher, and arrange visits.
The Four Year Old Programme
For details about our programme are on the Four Year Old Programme page you can click the 'parent handbooks' button to the right.
Prior to starting school
Before your child starts their first day with us, we need proof of address and a copy of your child's birth certificate (if they are a new entrant) and immunisation certificate, and passport with valid visas if applicable.
Coming from overseas
If you are coming from overseas, if you could bring a copy of their last report form, this will help us in deciding where best to place them. If you have any questions about the NZ education system, please just ask.
