Starting school is a new and exciting experience for children and their family. So before starting at Newtown we recommend your child comes into the school for a number of classroom visits.

This is a chance for both you and your child to have a look around the school, see how the classroom works and ask any questions you may have. It gives the teachers a chance to meet you and your child, and gives your child a chance to see the classroom and become familiar with the environment. This is also a good opportunity to meet the parents of other new children.

School Visits

Every Tuesday between 1:30pm and 3pm our new entrants class, Te Whanau Tui, welcomes new children who are close to starting school. However if visiting at this time doesn’t suit please contact the office on 389 6667 to arrange another time to visit.

Please note that parents need to stay with their children during a school visit.


To enrol your child at Newtown School you will need to submit a completed enrolment form to the office together with a valid form of identification for the child and the child’s most up to date immunisation certificate.
