We are excited to offer our local Early Childhood Centres the opportunity to visit us on our Transition to School Open Mornings each term to ensure that our new students feel secure in starting at our school with increased confidence and a greater understanding of school life.

These visits are for students who are already enrolled to start with us and also for students who are considering coming to our school. During all of our open mornings parents are welcome to attend with their child and their Early Childhood teachers. These open morning visits are in addition to the personalised pre-school visits that each new child will have with their New Entrant teacher closer to their own school start date – (our Student Administrator, Karen Blanchard, will be in touch to arrange this).

We ask that only children who are at a minimum of 4.6 – 5 years old attend, as these visits will be in established New Entrant/Year One classrooms.

If you are going to visit us for the open morning could you please email our Transition to School Team Leader (Liz Lapish) at lizl@maungawhau.school.nz or Karen Blanchard atkarenb@maungawhau.school.nz to confirm the number of children who will be attending.

Dates and times for these visits for 2019 are yet to be confirmed.
