New Entrant enrolments follow the same procedure. However, there are usually more places available at this level each year. Four year old children can come to our “Four Year Old” mornings held every second Friday (in Term time) from 9am to 11am. On this day they join with the other junior children for “Discovery Time” – a play based rich learning time.
All New Entrants require a copy of their birth certificate and vaccination certificate as part of the enrolment process.
Poukawa School runs an unofficial cohort entry, whereby we encourage new starters to the school to begin their learning journey with us at either the beginning (Week 1) or midpoint (Week 6) of each term. This allows a smoother and more successful transition for student, teacher and the class.
At the time of enrolment, families can choose to join our Bus Transport Scheme. Families in this scheme can have their child transported to school on our own school bus. We complete three runs each day. We pick up in Hastings, Havelock North, Te Hauke and Pakipaki.
If you choose to use this scheme we ask for a donation amount depending on how far we transport your child. Joining the scheme is voluntary and families are free to transport their own children to school if they prefer.
