The school is open to all students from new entrant to year 8, with a connection to a Catholic Parish Community.  A preference form, signed by the Parish Priest, must be received by the school for each child wishing to enrol.  Appointments with the Parish Priest can be made by contacting the Parish Secretary on 388-6953.

We encourage parents to pre-enrol their child as early as possible, preferably by the age of 4.  This includes younger siblings of students already at the school.

An Enrolment Package can be sent out to you by calling the school office 388-7189.  Once you have the Preference letter and have completed the enrolment forms please return them to the school office along with the following documents:

  • New Zealand birth certificate or New Zealand passport
  • If your child has a parent born outside of New Zealand please provide a copy of parent’s passport. 
  • If child born outside New Zealand please provide birth certificate, passport showing current residency status.
  • Your child’s immunisation records 
  • Child’s Baptismal Certificate (if available)
