New Entrant Information

Five year olds are welcomed into Kokopu’s fun and friendly environment through a series of visits organised between parent and school. Arrangements are flexible to better cater to the individual child’s needs and ease the transition into school. In addition to this, we are committed to providing small junior classes with teaching and learning programmes based on sound practise. We encourage you to enrol your child well before his/her fifth birthday. The enrolment process requires you to bring your child’s birth certificate or passport and vaccination information. An enrolment package takes about 5 minutes to complete and is available in the school office.
