Enrolment information

We welcome new enrolments at Ridgway School from families living within our zone. For general enquiries about enrolment, please email office@ridgway.school.nz.

Ridgway School's (proposed) zone** includes Kingston, Mornington, most of Vogeltown and the southern end of Brooklyn. We invite families living in these areas to enrol with us and join our Ridgway community.

- French speaking families who value bilingual education (French and English) but live outside of our zone may apply for a place in our bilingual class. See our Ruru La Chouette page for more detail.

To enrol your child at Ridgway School in either our mainstream classes or in our French-English bilingual class, download and complete our enrolment form and send or email this to the office.

**Note that our zone is not yet approved by the Secretary for Education, however we expect it to be in place by the start of 2021.

Please note; upon enrolment the school needs to sight a copy of your child's birth certificate and immunisation certificate - these can be scanned and emailed to the office.

We encourage children approaching school age (at around 4 years 10 months) to make an in class school visit with their parent or caregiver. This visit is beneficial for helping children become familiar with school, and for parents to get to know the school and teachers. When we have received your enrolment form, you can then book a pre-school visit by contacting the school office (call 939 8771 or email office@ridgway.school.nz).

These visits are only on Tuesday's during Week 2 (except in term 1), Week 4, Week 6 and Week 8 of each term, 10am to 11am. It's a good idea to bring a small snack of either a piece of fruit or vegetable, as our learners have a fruit break at 10am.

Please note that the parent or caregiver must be on site during these visits.
