Dairy Flat School Enrolment Zone – Explanation

Dairy Flat School has worked with the Ministry of Education and the local community to put an enrolment zone in place – this takes effect from 1st January 2017. To enrol your child you need to make an appointment and complete an enrolment form and pack details.  We would like to give you the opportunity to look around the school and ask any questions you may have. Please see the attached image and description to see the proposed zone.

YOUR CHILD IS STARTING AT DAIRY FLAT SCHOOL Please contact our office via phone or email and we can assist you with the enrolment process.

PRE-ENROLMENTS (new entrants) We invite you to visit the school prior to your child’s enrolment.  Your child will be asked to spend approximately 6 morning sessions in the new entrant room as part of the transition process (these are currently held on Friday mornings, 8:55-11am).

Birth Certificates: a copy of your child’s birth certificate is legally required on admission. You will also be supplied with an enrolment form to be completed prior to your child commencing school.  You also need to supply a record of your child’s immunisation. Please note that your child is unable to commence school till they have reached their fifth birthday.

Immunisation Certificates: a copy is legally required for all new entrant enrolments.

Passports:  a copy of your child’s passport or relevant visa information is required if your child is not a New Zealand citizen.  In some cases payment as a foreign fee student may apply.
