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. Enrolment forms are available year round and the school hosts enrolment days and evenings in the third term.

Although we have a school zone, for 2021 all out of zone enrolments will be accepted.  However, we do however require proof of address (i.e. a power bill or bank statement).  The map of our school zone can be seen by clicking on the link below.

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

We are holding Open Days on Wednesday 12 August and Thursday 13 August from 9.00am-3.00pm.  Parents and caregivers are invited to come along and observe the school in action.  The Principal and Deputy Principal will be giving individual and group tours during these hours and no appointment is necessary.

In addition, we are holding an Open Evening on Thursday 13 August commencing at 7.00pm and parents and children are invited to attend.  After a meeting in the hall, teachers and school leaders will be on hand to explain how the school functions and to show you around.

2021 Enrolments

2021 enrolments will be open from Monday 17 August during school hours.  For 2021, all out of zone enrolments will be accepted, however, we require proof of address (i.e. a power bill or bank statement).  Prospectus packs will be available from the school office in July.
