All children are enrolled at the school administration centre.  Parents of children who are enrolling at 5 years of age must have a copy of the child’s Birth Certificate, Passport or other legal document for confirmation of age.  They also need an Immunisation Certificate which shows what immunisations the child has had.  Certificates are available from the family doctor.  These children are classified as Year 1 if their start date is before 31 March, or Year 0 from 1 April.

Parents or guardians of children newly resident in New Zealand must have a copy of either a Resident Permit or Work Permit from the N.Z. Immigration Service, as well as Passport, Birth Certificate or other documentation to verify age.
