Enrolment at Kihikihi School
Starting school for the first time
Previously at Kihikihi School, children have been able to start school on or after their 5th birthday. However, at Kihikihi School we have adopted a Cohort Entry policy from Term 2, 2020. Cohort entry is when new entrants start school in groups through the year rather than on their fifth birthday.
|Term||Start of Term Entry Date||Mid Term Entry Date|

For New Entrants: Once you have completed the enrolment we will contact you prior to the start date to confirm school transition visits. These usually consist of 5 days in their class in the 5 weeks leading up to their start date (as listed above), but this may vary.
For other year groups: Contact the school office if you would like to make an appointment to visit the school prior to starting. Please allow up to 3 days for processing of new enrolments - we will advise you of the start date for your child.
If you are unable to complete the online enrolment form an Enrolment Pack can be picked up from the school office or posted to you.
If you have any queries, please contact the school office on (07) 871 6152.
