Do you have a transition programme for new entrants?

Yes.  For children who are turning five (and therefore starting school for the first time) you will be contacted approximately 4-6 weeks prior to their starting date.  Each child will have three Ngā Kākano (‘transition to school’) visits. Transition visits consist of you and your child experiencing ‘life in the learning communities’ and having plenty of opportunities to learn about Te Ao Mārama School.
