NEW ENROLLMENTS FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2016 AND 2017

Parents wishing to have their children attend Elm Park School must complete an application form for enrolment.  If your child turns 5 this coming year or next year and we have yet to receive an enrolment form, please contact the school office for one or click here to download one. If you put your younger child’s name on the bottom of an older sibling form when enrolling, you still need to fill out an enrolment form.  The best time to enrol your child is around their 4th birthday.  If you know of children in your extended family, street or neighbourhood who are intending to enrol, please could you encourage them to do so early as class numbers fill up quickly.

Focus on Children

Two weeks ago Room 27 went on a class trip to Bunnings.  Nga tamariki had an amazing time putting their building skills to the test and adding their own personal flair to their creations.  A huge thank you Dani and the team at Botany Bunnings for making sure we had a memorable building experience.
