Enrolment Procedures

To become an enrolled student at St Thomas Aquinas School, each prospective family must visit the Parish Priest (03) 236 8084. If you would like a support person from our school to assist you through this process please let us know and we can arrange a BOT member to get in contact with you.

When a child is enrolled at the school, some personal information is required. This involves such aspects as family placement, health background, interests. Such information becomes part of school records and enables teachers to make informed decisions about the child.

A school record card is started and relevant academic and health information is entered. This card follows the child through the classes and is sent on to the next school attended. It should be pointed out that any information on the record card is completely confidential to the Principal, Class Teacher, selected official personnel who have to refer to the card - eg, Health Nurse and the parents of the child. Parents have the right to access any records pertaining to their child that the school holds and can amend or correct the record if required.

Note: It is a Ministry of Education requirement that we sight and have a copy of a birth certificate or passport for 5 year old children, visa documents and passport for those who have immigrated into NZ and an Immunisation Certificate.

A copy of the Immunisation certificate will be retained by the school and details entered into an Immunisation Register. The certificate shows whether a child is fully immunised or not. If not, it shows which, if any, of the nine diseases the child is protected against. The immunisation certificate must be completed and signed by the doctor or practice nurse. This immunisation certificate can be found on the back page of the Well Child-Tamariki Ora Health Book given to parents of every child at birth. If the book is lost, parents and caregivers can get another book or separate certificate from their doctor or nurse.

A file on each pupil is created giving personal data regarding addresses, telephone
numbers, including emergency contacts. It is most important that this file is kept up to date.

Please inform the school, as soon as possible, of any changes in such data. This
also applies to business telephone numbers.
