Enrolment at Te Uku School

Enrolment information

It is helpful to know of any expected enrolments well in advance. For a new entrant, pre-enrol when your child turns 4. This helps us know when you are coming. Te Uku School is a 'full' primary school as we cover Years 0-8.  Year 0 students are new entrants that start primary school in the second half of the year, and move into Year 1 the following year. Our cut off date is the 1st of July each year.
