The Crofton Downs Primary School Board of Trustees invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their children at the school in the 2019 academic school year.  Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office and on our website.

To complete an application please click THIS LINK. The deadline for receipt of applications is 5pm, October 15th, 2018.

The Board has determined that 6 places at New Entrant level are available for out of zone enrolments in 2019. Parents of students who live within the home zone should also apply by the 15th October deadline to assist the school to plan appropriately.


If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot is required it will be held on 30th October 2018. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.

Due to demand, Ni Hao Children's Community Charitable Trust is providing Beginners Mandarin classes (Level 1) in the Khandallah area from Term 2 onwards, on Tuesdays 3:30-4:40pm at The Village Church. This is open to children in Years 1 to 8 (however if there is large mix of ages, we will split into two classes: Years 1-4 and Years 5-8). 

 

Your child will learn Mandarin Chinese as a Foreign/Additional Conversational Language in a fun and engaging way, in a full immersion environment with their peers. Our programme is for those from non-Chinese backgrounds and Chinese heritage  families who do not use Mandarin.
The children will learn in a way that is meaningful and relevant to life (practical, not academic), with social interaction/conversation, games, raps. We do not spend time painting or making crafts as the focus is on developing oral language skills. Your children will also be introduced to some basic Chinese character writing related to the curriculum. (Please note that learning a new language once a week is a long term commitment. Our programme is planned for children to attend consecutive terms / school years).
Please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit nihaocc.org.nz for more info, view the schedule and to sign up for a trial! There are also opportunities to provide lunchtime or after school classes in your child's school if the school permits and has suitable space.
