Otonga Road School is Zoned.
Enrolment forms to be completed:
As a new entrant we need to sight your child's Birth Certificate or passport , and their immunisation certificate, which we will photocopy.
All students who live within the home zone described below shall be entitled to enrol at the school. Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.
The zone begins at the intersection of Mokoia Drive and SH5, and follows SH5 (Old Taupo Road) to the intersection with Otonga Road and Devon Street. The zone includes Devon Street West to the intersection with Pukehangi Road (including 476 Pukehangi Road) and continues southwest before turning southeast towards the intersection of Tumunui Road d Barber Road East. The zone curves east to point 1km south of the intersection of Wilson Road and SH5. Continuing in an easterly direction, the zone turns to the north towards the intersection of Highlands Road and Forestry Road, bisects Lake Rotokakahi and continues north to the intersection of Mokoia Drive and SH5.
Children who are about to start school may attend a 10 week transition to school programme called Ready Set Go. They may also attend two Friday morning classes in their new room two weeks before turning five.
If you are from overseas we will need both parent and child passports showing current immigration status. Children under the age of 11 must be living with a 'Legal Guardian' while in NZ. The child must have a student VISA of which copies will need to be supplied as well.
At Otonga we enrol all children with their age peer group. We have found that even if children are starting school for the very first time at age 6 or 7, and even if they have no English language, it is still better that the child starts with their age group. They quickly make friends who will be their friends during their time at Otonga School.
