Regular Student Enrolment

Your children are always most welcome at Opua School. We have an open enrolment policy. If you would like to discuss a future enrolment and/or would appreciate a tour of our school to help you in your decision-making process, please ring our Main Office 0n 09 4027840 to organise an appointment time or, alternatively, don’t hesitate to email me at

Reproduced below is our latest Welcome Pack and, separately, the forms that need completing for enrolment. These can be downloaded by clicking on each link. They contains all the basic information you need and all the necessary forms. I hope you find the Welcome Pack a very useful starting point and I look forward to hearing from you.

    I would like to know if you take out of zone enrollments (if we don’t reside directly in Opua) for the beginning of the new year? Our family is currently selling our home in Te Awamutu to relocate somewhere in or around Paihia/Opua/Kawakawa through Dec/Jan.
    I would also be very interested in a school visit from the 19th of Dec (I know school is closed but would like to get a feel of the school environment).

    Tane is five turning six in March.

    Kind regards

    • Hi Kim and David

      Apologies for the late reply but Christmas and New Year has been very hectic indeed.

      To answer your questions: yes, we do take out of zone enrolments. School starts on February 2nd but I could meet you at school on Thursday Jan 28th or Friday Jan 29th. Sorry it can’t be earlier but I am away, out of the area. Good luck with the move and I do look forward to meeting you both with Tane. If you would like to ask any other questions, you are welcome to email me at which I check more regularly than the website.

      Kind Regards

      Simon McGowan
