New Entrant Information

Pohutukawa Team New Entrant School Visits

All children intending to enrol at Swanson School are able to attend pre-visits before starting school. Pre-visits are held in a new entrant class, from 8.50am to 11.00am, every Thursday morning.  We welcome all children from four years of age and we encourage you to attend as many visits as you wish, to help your child have an easier transition to school. All children must be accompanied by an adult during the pre-visit. Please sign in at the office when you arrive at school and you will be directed to the new entrant classrooms. If you have any queries, please phone the school office on 8310001.

For information about programmes on offer at our school,  please make an appointment to see our Deputy Principal.

Enrollment scheme / zone

An enrolment scheme operates at Swanson School to prevent overcrowding.  All students who live within the home zone are entitled to enrol at the school.  Details of the home zone are available at the school office. Each year the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone is determined by the BOT.
