Enrolling at Wairau is an easy process. It is very important to enrol your child well in advance of the school year, to help with successful class placements and school organisation. All enrolment applications (both In Zone and Out of Zone) should be received by the beginning of Term 4, Friday 13 October.
Wairau Intermediate has a school school zone. Although in zone enrolments are given first priority, we are in a position to accept out of zone enrolment applications for 2023. For all enrolments we require proof of address (i.e. a power bill or bank statement) and a sighted copy of a passport or birth certificate. Scanned copies of these documents can be accepted at this time and should be emailed with the enrolment form to our school secretary: email@example.com
For children who were not born in New Zealand and do not have a New Zealand passport, we will require one of the following:
student’s residence permit or returning residence visa
parent’s work permit and student’s permit/visa
student’s New Zealand citizenship certificate
Open Days / Evening
Parents / caregivers are invited to come along to visit our school on our Open Days being held on Tuesday 1 August and Wednesday 2 August between the hours of 9.00am and 3.00pm. During this time parents/caregivers can observe a vibrant, interactive snapshot of the school in action. Throughout the day, during school hours, individual/group tours of the school will be conducted by the Principal and Deputy Principal, and no appointment will be necessary.
An Open Evening will be held on Wednesday 2 August from 7.00pm-8.30pm commencing in the school hall. Teachers and current pupils will be on hand to explain how the school functions and to show you around.
