If you are considering enrolling your child at our school, please give the office a call and they will make a time for a tour of the school with the principal or deputy principal. It is a great chance for us to begin to develop a relationship that enables us to care for and educate your child together.
Peninsula Primary provides a high quality rich education and has experienced significant growth. The school adopted an enrolment scheme on 2016 under the advice of the Ministry of Education.
If you live within our zone you are entitled to a place at our school. There is an area that is a shared zone with Matipo School. Families in this area have the choice of either school. Click here for a map of our zone. There are limited places for Out of Zone students for 2018.
On the day that your child starts school we ask that you provide evidence that you are living at your given address. At school we are able to copy a utility bill, tenancy agreement or sale and purchase agreement if you are moving into the area. We do need to sight the original.
If you live outside of the zone and you want to enrol you will need to apply through a ballot. Under Ministry of Education guidelines there are some groups of students who are given preference; students who already have a sibling at our school, siblings of former students, children of former pupils and finally students of employees or board members.
Under Ministry of Education rules the school is unable to take any other information into consideration.
The board invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their sons and daughters at Peninsula Primary School for next year.
Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office. Application forms can be collected from the school office or mailed to you on request. Please call 834 6711.
The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone places is 16th October 2017.
Parents of students who live within the home zone should also apply by this date to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.
The board has determined that some places are likely to be available for out of zone students next year. We expect that there will be 2 places available in year 5 and 6, 5 places available in years 2-4. Approximately 8 places will be available to children turning 5. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.
If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot is required, it will be held on Thursday 19th October.
Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
