We'd love to meet you

The first step to enrolment 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.

Transition to School

Starting school is a big step, so here are some things that we do to help it run smoothly.

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.

Children aged 3 and 4 years are invited to a Play Group on the third and eighth Thursday of each term, from 10.30am to noon.


These sessions are a great opportunity to meet other children and their families who will be starting school in the next year or so.


Contact the office for more details, or keep an eye on the school facebook page for more details. 

About 10 weeks prior to starting school, children are invited for a weekly visit to help them settle in . These can be taken at your pace, on a day of the week that works for you. Start with the morning session and build up to a whole day. 

We have put together all our enrolment information and documents in one place to make it easy for you to have a look through.
