Classes for 2019

Staff are over the next few weeks starting to organise all children into classrooms for 2019. If you have a preference of the class you would like your child to be in next year if we can accommodate that, we will try. Any queries please feel free to contact or come and see Whaea Chicky.

5 year olds for Term 4 and 2019

If you have a child who is turning five either next term or in 2019 and starting school here with us we would love to know as soon as possible please. If you could let us know your child’s name, their date of birth and if you have time come in and complete an enrolment form with Whaea Chicky. If you have available your child’s birth certificate and immunisation record they would be helpful too. Call the office if you have any questions.
