If you are considering enrolling your child please contact the Principal's Secretary, Nikki Donaldson, at ohs@otamatea.school.nz or 0800 682 628. An appointment time will be scheduled with the Principal either for a pre enrolment meeting and tour of the school or an enrolment interview. Prior to enrolment interviews the school makes contact with the previous school to obtain relevant information. A birth certificate and proof of address are required at the enrolment interview, along with the relevant forms which can either be downloaded, collected from the school office or posted out to you. A recent copy of a school report is also helpful in ensuring that your child is placed in the correct class and ensuring that they are well supported from day one.

On the agreed first day of school new students usually spend some time in The Learning Centre completing tests and familiarising themselves with the school routines, before attending regular classes. Students must be in full school uniform on their first day as this helps them to feel part of the school.
