ENROL WITH US
We would love to show you around our school. If you are interested in enrolment please contact the school office to arrange an appointment with the Principal. Claire will talk to you about our school, show you around and answer any questions you might have.
Contact Father Michael Hishon (ph 488 2577) to obtain a preference form. Preference of enrolment is given in the following circumstances.
The child has been baptised or is being prepared for baptism in the Catholic Church.
The child’s parents/guardians have already allowed one or more of its siblings to be baptised in the Catholic faith.
At least one parent/guardian is a Catholic, and although their child has not yet been baptised, the child’s participation in the life of the school could lead to the parents having the child baptised.
With the agreement of the child’s parent/guardian, a grandparent or other significant adult in the child’s life, such as an aunt, uncle or godparent, undertakes to support the child’s formation in the faith and practices of the Catholic Church.
One or both of a child’s non-Catholic parents/guardians is preparing to become a Catholic.
Under the integration agreement we are permitted to enrol 5% of children who do not qualify for preference of enrolment.
Once you have completed these forms, return them to school to confirm your enrolment. Six months before your child starts school they will receive an invitation to join our Headstart B4 School programme.
Any enquires about enrolment are most welcome.
Before School Programme
We offer a fun and welcoming Before School programme called Headstart. This is for new entrant beginners to St Peter Chanel School.
Children are invited to come and be part of the junior room, Pihinga, for one hour a week. All children are welcome 6 months before they begin school. The Headstart sessions run on Thursdays from 9am-10am. The children in the programme are encouraged to take part in all aspects of the classroom programme during these sessions. This builds a sense of belonging and supports the children in their transition to school. It enables our children to get to know their teachers and peers as well as the school getting to know the learners that are coming into our kura.
Pihinga runs in a Learning through Play environment. Children are invited to explore and play in a friendly and fun environment and the teachers are there to facilitate learning.
Please check out our Learning Through Play tab on this website for further information about Learning Through Play at St Peter Chanel School.
