Transition to School Open Morning

Friday, 1st November 8:30 am - Friday, 1st November 10:15 am

We are excited to offer our newly enrolled students the opportunity to visit us during our Transition to School Open Mornings each term before they start.  This is to ensure that our new students feel secure in starting at our school with increased confidence and a greater understanding of school life.

Students who are beginning in Term 2 can visit in Term 1 and 2; students starting in Term 3 can visit in Term 2 and 3, and students beginning in Term 4 can visit in Term 3 and 4.  Open morning visits are in addition to any personalised beginning school visits that each new student will have with their own New Entrant teacher closer to their own school starting date.  Our Student Administrator, Karen Blanchard, will be in touch to arrange this.

During all of our open mornings, we require a parent or a caregiver to attend with their child.  We ask that preschoolers do not attend, as these visits will be in established New Entrant/Year One classrooms.

To attend our open mornings please:

  1. Email Karen Blanchard at karenb@maungawhau.school.nz to confirm the number of children and adults that will be attending
  2. Bring a fruit snack so your child can sit and eat at our 10 am fruit break.
  3. Please meet in the school office to sign in at 8:30am. Visits conclude around 10:15am.
