The Board of Trustees and Staff thank you for your interest in having your child or children join us at Macandrew Bay School.
We are proud to be able to provide high quality learning programmes for the students in our school community.
There are just a few things to be aware of:
In 2013 we are now putting in an enrolment scheme, at the Ministry of Education’s request.
There will be an automatic right of entry for children living within our enrolment zone and you will be welcome to enrol your child at any time. It is important that we have good information about children who will be starting in the next few years so we can accurately predict how many new entrants to expect each year. Get in touch with the school office at any stage if you anticipate that your child will be attending Macandrew Bay School in the future.
The number of available places for children living outside our zone will be advertised and children living outside the zone will be admitted in priority order, as space allows, based on clear criteria. If there is more interest than we have available spaces then there might need to be a ballot. You can read about these criteria on our website in the information specifically about our Enrolment Scheme. It is best to ring the school office to find out more about available places if you live out of zone and have a talk to the School Principal or School Secretary.
You can download enrolment forms from the website and fill them in and return them to the school office.

We will need to see a copy of your child’s birth certificate and immunisation records at the time of enrolling. If you come from overseas we need to sight your passports so we can photocopy evidence of your visas.
We really enjoy meeting prospective parents and showing them through the school, either with or without their children. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about school life and tell you more about Macandrew Bay School.
About a term before your child is due to start it is a good idea to ring the school and make a time to start your child’s pre-school visits. New entrants usually spend 5-6 weeks making regular weekly visits to the new entrant classroom to help them make an easy transition to school. This helps them feel comfortable and relaxed in the new world of school.
