Enrolment

Preferential
The school is open to all students from new entrant to year 8, with a connection to a Catholic parish community.  A preference form, signed by the parish priest, must be received by the school for each child wishing to enrol.  Appointments with the parish priest can be made by contacting the parish secretary on 338-8395.

We encourage parents to pre-enrol their child as early as possible, preferably by the age of 4.  This includes younger siblings of students already at the school.

Once you have the preference form and have completed the enrolment forms please return them to the school office along with the following documents:
  • New Zealand birth certificate or New Zealand passport
  • If your child has a parent born outside of New Zealand please provide a copy of parent’s passport.
  • If child was born outside New Zealand please provide birth certificate and passport showing current residency status.
  • Your child’s immunisation records. 
  • Child’s baptismal certificate (if available).

Non-preferential

A limited number of students with non-preference status may be on the school roll.

Parents are able to place their child's name on the waiting list at any time.   Students will be offered placement as vacancies occur, and in accordance with the school's policy.

Enrolment Procedures

Meeting with the Principal
Once we have received your enrolment forms and documentation we shall arrange an interview for you and your child to meet with the school principal. 

Pre-school visits
We encourage two pre-school visits before a child begins school.   Please contact the school to confirm a suitable time.

Attendance dues
School attendance dues are required to be paid to the parish office. They are not payable to the school.The parish secretary  will send out invoices at the beginning of each year.  You are welcome to set up automatic payments to cover these. This money is used by the diocese to fund building and capital works in schools.
