Pre-Enrolment and the Enrolment Process
Manukau Christian School maintains an open enrolment policy and we have no enrolment zone.
Pre-Enrolment is essentially enrolling in advance. We recommend pre-enrolment be undertaken as early as possible, up to five years in advance of when you anticipate your child or children will be attending school.
Request a prospectus or visit the school at any time for more information. Click on International Students if you are not a domestic student.
The process is as follows:
Call our office for an enrolment form or download one from our website.
Once your family and children are pre-enrolled, you will become a member of the Friends of Manukau Christian School group. This will ensure that you receive regular school newsletters. In addition you will be welcome to visit and observe any classrooms or activities taking place in the school at any time—provided you notify us in advance so that we know to expect you. Submission of the enrolment application form does not guarantee a place in the school.
Finally, we will ensure that you receive an invitation to all general school functions and activities so that you can learn more about the School, get to know the teaching staff, and feel part of the wider School community.
The Board runs an enrolment list of potential students to be granted future enrolment and entrance to the school. We recommend that you complete the enrolment application as soon as possible to ensure your child is on the waiting list. Successful applicants to the enrolment list are prioritised according to the following criteria:
The Board gives top priority of admission to siblings of pupils already enrolled or who have brothers or sisters who are alumni of the School. Children whose parents attended Manukau Christian School also have an automatic right of enrolment in the School.
A second priority on the waiting list is children of families who are recommended to the School by a current school family or by a family whose children have now graduated from the School.
A third priority is given to those children and families who are recommended by the pastor of a Christian church, and where the family is a member or faithful adherent of that church.
