Enrolling Your 5 Year Old

For parents of pre-schoolers, you can assist our classroom planning by letting us know well ahead of time if your children will be attending our school.  For example, if you have a 3 or 4 year old, please give us a call and we will put them on our list of anticipated enrolments.

We would appreciate you calling in to see us a few months prior to your child’s 5th birthday to complete the enrolment process.  Our office staff can then organise your pre-school visits.  The junior team welcomes prospective students and their parents to the school and the teachers in that team make make it their mission to know you and your child in order to work together to prepare your child to be a 21st century learner.  We encourage you to book in for two pre school visits with your child prior to them starting here, our office staff will organise these with you.  These are currently run the two consecutive weeks prior to your child starting, on a Thursday at 9-10am. The visits will provide you with the answers to the many questions you may have and help support you and your child’s transition to primary schooling.

Enrolling Older Children

If your children are transferring to us from another school, please call in and complete the enrolment process at least one week before you would like them to start.  It would be helpful to us when placing your child if you could bring in a recent school report from their previous school.   Once we have all the documentation in place, and you have purchased uniforms, the children will be entitled to start the following day.

Enrolling Children from Overseas

This process is much the same, except that we will need you to provide proof of your children’s eligibility to be enrolled in a NZ school. This would be in the form of a current Student Visa, Residency Permit or Citizenship Certificate.

For further information, please contact the school office.

Zone Information

Because Papamoa Primary School has an enrolment zone in place enrolment will not be accepted without proof that you reside in our zone when enrolling your children. This needs to be in the form of a current power bill that clearly shows your name and address. 

Our zone commences at 175 and 180 Dickson Road, and 736 Papamoa Beach Road, and it extends eastwards to the end of Papamoa. Parton Rd, Bell Rd and Tara Road, to number 118, including any subdivisions accessing these roads, are in our zone. State Highway 2 from its junction with Domain Road to its junction with Poplar Lane, as well as Welcome Bay Rd, to and including Reid Road and Taranaki Lane, are also in our zone.
