There are two phases to enrolling:
PHASE ONE - expression of interest
We are an inclusive school and welcome enrolment applications from any primary school aged child (5-13 years, Years 1 to 8). Zoning does not apply. We no longer offer a one-day option but can recommend the Conscious Kids one day programme at Little Shoal Bay, Northcote on Wednesdays. Please get in touch by email if you would like more information on this.
Please complete as much information on this form as possible. A separate form is required for each child.
There are several sections to this form, and it will probably take you 15 minutes to complete.
When you have completed the Expression of Interest Form:
❏ send us a copy (by email to email@example.com) of your child’s most recent school report along with any other reports or information you consider relevant (e.g. learning stories) if applicable.
❏ send us a photo of your child, and a family photo if you like as well (by email).
Applications to enrol may be completed online using this form (preferred) or in hard copy and sent to: Enrolments Ako, 2 Miri Road, Rothesay Bay, Auckland.
PHASE TWO - interview and confirmation
❏ After receipt of all documentation, you will be contacted to arrange a meeting with one of our educators. This meeting will take approximately 45 minutes. Whanau are expected to attend with the child being enrolled. This is an opportunity for us to get to know you better, recognising that valuable information about your child can be provided through personal contact.
❏ You will be contacted shortly after this meeting by email or phone to either offer your child a place, or to explain why we are not able to offer a place.
❏ To secure your child’s placement you will need to confirm your acceptance by email, in person or by letter and paying a term’s fees in advance and make a non-refundable administration fee of $150.00 payable to Akospace. Ltd. Bank Account number: 12-3484-0020043-00. Ensure you have clearly identified your child’s first and last name on our bank account records.
❏ Settling in days or visits can also be arranged with prior agreement.
TUITION FEES FOR 2019
We don't receive any government funding or major grants from outside donors, so our fees (for now) are our main source of income.
$2,750 per term ($11,000 per year) per child
Fees for future years are likely to remain similar but will be increased by 3% annually to take into account inflation. We also hope to be able to offer a limited amount of financial assistance to families that may need it. Please enquire about availability.
A 3% discount is available for payment of fees for the year in advance.
All fees are GST inclusive and need to be paid one term at a time in advance unless otherwise agreed.
A 10% discount will apply to tuition fees for second and subsequent children attending from the same family at the same time.
To cover our costs of processing enrolment applications, we will charge an enrolment admin fee of $150 per child.
We will also ask families to pay a term's fees as an acceptance bond. This will be used in lieu of payment for the child's last term of attendance at Ako, as we require a term's notice of any decision to withdraw a student.
There are no uniform costs.There will be incidental costs for personal stationery and food, and any school excursions or camps.
We offer trial periods of up to 5 days. There is no additional cost for these if your child ends up enrolling fulltime after that. Otherwise, the daily cost is $35.
