Enrolment Process

Our enrolment process begins with parents submitting an Application Form with the following documentation to place their child on the list of applicants:

  • Copy of Birth Certificate or Passport/Visa (non-New Zealand residents)
  • Copy of most recent school report
  • Copy of any diagnostic or educational assessments (if applicable)
  • Application Fee of $150.00.

This is an important step even if your child will not be coming to Waihi for a few years. Once received, this will be kept on file until Term 2 of the year prior to enrolment, when you will be contacted to come in for an enrolment interview with our Headmaster.

Following this process, offers of a place will be sent out to those children that have been accepted for the following year. 

We warmly encourage you to book a tour of the school at any time so that you can gain a “real” understanding of our very special school.
