Pre-School Transition

Transition Visits for New Entrant (pre-5 / 5 Year-Old) Enrolments take place every Tuesday afternoon from 1:45pm - 2:45pm.

Children/Whānau are expected to complete a minimum of four visits prior to enrolment / beginning school - This is to allow for a smooth and seamless transition for both child and whānau.

** All new enrolments must have full uniform prior to officially starting school


Enrolment Information

It's simple...fill in a few forms, bring along your child's passport or birth certificate and health information and then sit down and meet with us.

At these meetings we typically will ask if there are any social, learning, or any concerns that we may need to be aware of to better support your child and ensure a smooth transition.

If your child was previously enrolled at another school it is not a mandatory requirement for you to inform them about changing schools, however we do contact them to ask about Attendance, Behaviour, Learning Needs. We request your child's records, etc from the previous school.


School Uniform is compulsory and available for purchase online and in-person at the NZ Uniforms store in Hastings. Credit Cards can be used online, EFTPOS is available in-store and they also except the green WINZ cards.

We can size your child up at school prior to purchasing uniform too.
