  • Your child’s passport if parents are immigrants to New Zealand
  • A copy of his/her immunisation certificate
  • Medical information including your doctor’s contact details
  • Any legal documents e.g. custody or access agreements the school should know about.
  • Contact details for your family and someone the school can call in an emergency
  • Proof of residences such as a power bill or tenancy agreement

Informal Cohort Entry

We operate an ‘informal cohort entry programme’ for five-year-olds starting school. This means that your child may not necessarily start as soon as they turn five, but may need to wait until a specific date (see entry dates below) to start. This makes it easier for staff and students in the transition to school when a group starts at the same time as opposed to staggered throughout the term.

Entry dates are as follows:

Term 1: 5-Year-old Students can start 3/2/2021 or 15/3/2021

Term 2: 5-Year-old Students can start 3/5/21 or 8/6/2021

Term 3: 5-Year-old Students can start 26/07/2021 or 30/08/2021

Term 4: 5-Year-old Students can start 18/10/2021 or 15/11/2021 As this is an ‘informal entry’ students can still start when they turn 5 if you wish.
