Out of Zone Enrolment
Maungawhau School Board of Trustees decide in August of each year whether an out of zone ballot will be held for new entrants for the following year according to projected roll numbers. If an out of zone ballot is to be held it will be advertised in the Central Leader.
The Maungawhau School Board of Trustees made a decision at the August 2013 BOT meeting that we will not hold an out of zone ballot this year for 2014 placements.
In Zone Enrolment
Maungawhau School operates an enrolment zone. Providing you are currently residing within the home zone prior to enrolment you are automatically entitled to enrol your child.
Please contact us by email and we will post you an enrolment pack. Enrolment packs are available from the school office between the hours of 8.30am and 4pm on weekdays.
Once we have received your completed "Student Enrolment" form your child will be added to our pre-enrolment list. Four weeks prior to your child turning 5 we will phone and ask you to come in and meet with our Principal. At that time please bring with you all the paperwork needed to finalise your enrolment. These are the things you will need to complete:
- Declaration of residency, witnessed by a JP or solicitor
- Audiology form
- Dental Enrolment form (if you are not already enrolled)
We will also need to sight originals of the following:
- Current Auckland City rates demand or
- Your Tenancy agreement and a current power account
- Your child’s immunisation certificate (if fully immunised)
- Your child’s birth certificate or passport
It is a legal requirement of the Ministry of Education, that all enrolment forms are completed prior to enrolment, failure to do so may jeopardise your child’s place.
Once you have met with the Principal, your child will be placed in a class and class room visits can be arranged. We suggest a Thursday morning until first break (11a.m). However if Thursday mornings are inconvenient an alternative day can be arranged.
During Term 2 and Term 4, new parents to the school are invited to a morning tea. These are hosted by the senior management team. This is a great way to meet other parents and learn about our school.
Stationery packs containing all you will need will be in your child's class on the first day. Once your child has started school you will receive a statement in regards to school fees.
If you have any questions, or want any additional information please contact our student administrator on 6388829 or firstname.lastname@example.org
