Motueka South School

He Kura Mā Tātou - A School For Everyone


You and your child(ren) are welcome to visit our New Entrant class in Room 2 to help prepare them for school.  Our aim is to work with you. At least six weeks prior to your child's 5th birthday please contact the school office to make contact with the New Entrant Teacher.

An enrolment pack is available from our school office.  When you enrol your child you will need to bring a copy of your child's Birth Certificate and Immunisation Record.

Pre-entry Visits

Usually four pre-entry visits will be arranged but the organisation is flexible to the child's needs. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your child regarding the most appropriate arrangements for your child's transition to Motueka South School.    


The morning programme comprises - Mat time (with songs), Buddy Change, News, and Jolly Phonics, along with PUMP (our Perceptual Motor Programme) and Story Writing. After interval, the programme comprises Reading, Singing, Educational Games and Maths. Your child may want to observe, or as is usually the case, will join in happily.  

We look forward to a long and happy association with your family at Motueka South School.
