Starting school for the first time or shifting to a new school is both exciting and at times, can be a little bit scary. Don’t worry…we are here to help!
At Waiuku Primary School (WPS) we understand this and work in partnership with the families | whānau to ensure that this is a positive and happy transition.
When should I enrol my child to go to school?
Your child can start at WPS between age 5 and 6. All children must be enrolled at school by their 6th birthday.
Once your child has started here, they must go to school every day. This is a change from the earlier rule, where regular attendance was required only from age 6.
Enrolling early helps us with our planning and staffing.
Get in touch with Sue firstname.lastname@example.org at the office to enrol them, arrange a time for your child to start and plan some visits to make this a happy and positive experience. We typically offer two pre-school visits from 9 am to 11:30 am on Wednesdays for those students turning 5.
Please continue exploring the Enrolment drop-downs in our website.
We look forward to meeting you and your child in the near future.
