We'd love to meet you

The first step to enrollment is to come for a school visit.

You can meet with our principal, Jo Wilson, and tell us a little about your child. She can answer your questions and give you a tour of the school.

This is a great way to get a feel for the school and that it will be a good fit for your child.

Our principal is a teaching principal so the best days to organise a school visit are Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.

Wednesday Wekas

A transition to school programme for four-year-olds


Sarah Thompson is our new entrant teacher in Ruma Rātā, better known to children as Ms T.

Read more about why she loves teaching and where her passions lie.

Starting school is a big step for children!

Some take it all in their stride seemingly without a worry, while others take time to adjust and need lots of support through the process.

Wednesday Wekas is our transition to school programme which helps to prepare your child to start school.

We invite four-year-olds to join us on Wednesdays in Ruma Rātā for about ten weeks before their fifth birthday. We suggest starting with two-hour sessions and moving up to whole school days at your child's pace.

Get to know our new entrant teacher and all the wonderful children in Ruma Rātā, explore the classroom and playground, and have fun.

We have put together all our enrollment information and documents in one place to make it easy for you to have a look through. You can come back to this link any time you want to check something so save on paper or having to find a place to keep this info handy!
