New Entrant Procedures and Enrolments

NEW ENTRANTS

Starting school for the first time is an important event in both your child's life and yours, especially if it is your first child to start. In order to make the transition to school life easy and comfortable, you are asked to bring your child to an orientation morning prior to their starting date. You are also invited to bring your child for one or two classroom visits in the weeks before they start school. This gives both you and your child a chance to become familiar with the environment, routines, staff and other children.

Start date for your child is the first Monday after they turn 5.
Class visits take place at 9am on the two Tuesdays before your child officially starts school.

 

To arrange an initial visit please contact the school office 09 424 9029

If you have pre enrolled our Team Leader in charge of liaison with new entrant families is Nicola Winter and she can be contacted at nwinter@wgp.school.nz
