We welcome new enrolments to our school! Prospective parents are welcome to visit and we are happy to show your around our school.
Please email office@kaikoura.school.nz or phone Deb on 03 319 5440 and we can walk you through the very easy process of enrolling your child/ren. New entrant children are required to provide a copy of their birth certificate or passport and to show their immunisation records to date.
School visits are organised for the school term leading up to their 5th birthday and we encourage a weekly visit for the whole term on a Thursday morning from 9:00-10.30am.  Parents are welcome to stay for the first few school visits.
