Enrolling at Newton School

It is very important that you first read the school zoning policy.


To assist with managing the enrolment process please ensure enrolment forms for new students are completed in the year prior to your child starting school. The main form required to begin the enrolment process was developed by the N.Z. Principals' Association. We have included a sample in PDF format, as the form is fairly detailed.

Maori Medium Pathways

There are 2 Maori Medium pathways offered at Newton Central School.  The total immersion programme is designed for Kohanga Reo or Puna Reo graduates who are competent speakers of Te Reo Maori.  The bilingual programme is designed to scaffold children's language who are not required to come from Maori speaking homes and may not have attended Kohanga or Puna Reo.  For entrance into either of these special programmes listed below, there is a tono process:

  1. Te Whanau Rumaki o Te Uru Karaka (attendance at a tono hui, including an informal assessment of the child's Te Reo Maori competency)
  2. Te Whanau Reo Rua o Awahou (hui with whanau representative/s and team leader)
