We are registered with the Ministry of Education to enrol international students and encourage enquiries from overseas families who may wish to spend all or part of a year living in the Nelson/Tasman region of New Zealand. International students must be living with their parents for the duration of their stay in New Zealand and some proficiency in English is preferable.

New pupils are enrolled at the School Office, usually with the Tumuaki, Andrea Smith. We welcome enquiries and opportunities to show families around our school and we also encourage early enrolment of new entrant children, so that we can arrange orientation visits by the children and their parents during the two or three weeks leading up to the actual starting date.

If you are enrolling a 5 year old new entrant , a copy of the child’s birth certificate (or Passport or other legal document) is required for confirmation of age. We also need to sight your child’s Immunisation Certificate available from your family doctor.

Starting school is a big step for any child. At Parklands, we recognise the importance of a happy start to school and an easy transition from pre-school to school. Our Headstart Programme assists children and their families with this new experience and ensures the best possible start. Come and meet our New Entrant kaiako, Whaea Jessie and Miss Kershaw today!
