Enrolment Pack Information

Kia Ora

Please find the following information helpful when enrolling your child at Bathgate Park School.

Enrolment Procedure

When enrolling your child at the office, the school requires proof of age and citizenship from a Birth Certificate / Passport as well as your child's immunisation form. We will also need details of medical information, allergies etc. which may affect learning or require specific attention. These need to be noted and also parental/caregiver or custody arrangements.

For new entrant enrolments, this may be done prior to their 5th birthday.

Before your child offically starts, you will need to make an appointment to meet with the Principal.

New Entrant Enrolments

This is an exciting time for you and your child as it marks the start of another milestone.  At Bathgate Park School, we want to make this major event as stressfree and enjoyable as possible.  To assist with this we encourage preschool visits.  Please indicate at the time of your inquiry if you are looking at mainstream (English medium) or bilingual (Maori medium) enrolment.  Please feel free to make a time to talk to the Principal if  you would like more information about these options.

  • We welcome visits to, or enquiries from, parents of pre-school children. Prior to your new entrant starting school, it is recommended that they visit school to become familiar with their new surroundings and teacher.
  • Little Stars is the name of our English mainstream preschool school visit programme.   The new entrant class is called Rehua. Rehua is the Maori Guardian of Stars. The little stars that are joining this class always sparkle and shine with their bright light; twinkle with enthusiasm and are fascinating to watch.
  • Little Stars is held on Wednesday afternoons from 2:00 – 3:00pm. The class teacher will organise morning visits for pre-schoolers with parents closer to the child’s 5th birthday.
  • Ngā Kakano is the name of our Māori medium preschool visit programme.  Nhā Kakano means Little Seed / Sapling.  This is connected with Te Rakiātea, our Māori medium learning class.  Te Rakiātea is a name that has been gifted by Ngai Tahu, to Bathate Park School, and is significant and connected to the South Dunedin area the school sits upon.
  • Ngā Kakano visits in 2021 will be made after a korero with the kaiako from Te Rakiātea and yourself.
