Enrolling your child
All children must be enrolled at a registered school by the time they turn six. Any child is entitled to be enrolled unless they have been indefinitely suspended from another school. In this case, the Board of Trustees will meet and consider the individual case, and either accept or decline the enrolment.
If a parent wishes to enrol a child with special needs, the school may need to obtain appropriate resources from the Ministry of Education to accommodate the child.
Parents are welcome to arrange an appointment to meet the Principal.
Parents complete an enrolment form to provide the school with information for its database. The school completes the enrolment process. The forms, and information booklets for new parents, are available from the main office.
When the student is enrolled, their relevant details are recorded into the Ministry of Education database.
New entrant five year olds are encouraged to visit school before enrolment to ensure a smooth transition to school. Contact the main office to organize preschool visits. Visits are usually arranged for 9:00 - 11:00 am Tuesday or Thursday. There are usually one to four visits prior to a child starting school, and an adult must stay with the child. Both are welcome to stay for interval and the child may wear school uniform.
Before and After School Care
Before School Care Programme - 7.30am-8.30am
Our Beforecare Programmes offer opportunities for children to choose between a range of art and craft activities, games, Lego, books and free play equipment. Staff will lead a variety of small projects each term. All this leads to preparing children for a busy day of learning.
After School Care Programme 3.00pm-6.00pm
Our Aftercare Programmes are focused around sports, cooking, art and craft activities as well as structured ‘free-time’ after a busy day at school.
These activities will be incorporated into themed subjects each week that give children the opportunity to extend their learning outside of the school classroom. There will be set time for children to complete homework should they (or their parents) want homework completed before they are collected.All children on our Aftercare Programmes will be provided with afternoon tea at approximately 3.15pm each day. Afternoon tea will include sandwiches on wholemeal bread, fresh fruit and water. Children that are still on the programme at 4.45pm will be provided with snacks such as muesli bars, crackers, cookies and fresh fruit to keep them going.
