Enroling your child
Cardinal McKeefry School is an urban primary school only a short distance by car or bus from either Wellington city centre or the Western and surrounding suburbs. The usual entry points are at Year 1 and Year 7, but we do sometimes have vacancies at other year levels.
Please contact the Principal, Colleen Restieaux, to speak with her about enrolling your child or to receive an enrolment pack.
When enrolling your child we require:
- A completed and signed enrolment form
- A completed “preference of enrolment” form signed by a priest, lay pastoral leader or ethnic chaplain
- A signed Catholic Schools Board form regarding Archdiocesan Attendance Dues
We are also required to sight your child’s:
- NZ birth certificate (if not a New Zealand citizen, then passport and other relevant documentation)
- immunisation certificate
For those turning 5 years old:
Prior to their actual school starting day, we arrange for school visits for children. This is most helpful in giving new students the opportunity to meet their teacher and the class. Two to three visits are recommended. The visiting times are usually Friday mornings:
9.00 – 10.30 visit 1 & 9.00 – 12.30 visit 2
These visits will be organised by the class teacher who will contact you or can be requested through Suz, our Office Manager, on 4753262 or firstname.lastname@example.org
For those entering our school from Year 2 upwards, we may arrange a transition visit depending on circumstances.
