New Entrants

We believe in the importance of building relationships, and have a careful process for easing our New Entrant students into our school.

Our New Entrant classes are Rimu 1, Rimu 2 and Rata 2 and are taught by Mrs Bev Davies, Miss Sarah Jolliffe and Mrs Sally Usher.

Three weeks before your child is due to start (usually on their 5th birthday, but parents have flexibility with this), your child will commence Wednesday morning visits. They are accompanied by a parent, and visit our New Entrant class from 9:00am until 11:00am (the end of morning tea). Children gain an understanding of how school “works” and get to know the students and teacher in their class.

Early enrolment is vital to set this programme up.
