Te Kowhai School - To Be Our Very Best

Enrolling at Te Kowhai School

It is useful for the school to know well in advance any expected enrolments.  For new entrant children, when your child turns four, pre enrol so we know you are coming.   

Please also see our ‘School Entry System & Kickstart’  information page.  Kickstart is our transition to school programme for four year olds.  

Enrolment Scheme

Te Kowhai has an enrolment scheme to avoid overcrowding or the likelihood of overcrowding.

All students who live within the home zone are entitled to enrol at the school.  

Please click the link for the MoE  'Find a School' website where you can put your residence address in and see what school(s) your household is eligible for.
