This booklet contains information for whānau with children starting at our school.

If your child is starting school for the first time as a 5 year old. We recommend you also visit the Starting School At 5 page of this website.

All children who live within the home zone are entitled to attend Onehunga Primary School. Parents should apply early to assist the school to plan appropriately. Click here for zone details.

The address given at the time of the application for enrolment must be the child's usual place of residence when the school is open for instruction. This means that if you currently live at an in-zone address but move to an out-of-zone address before your child's first day of attendance, your child will not be entitled to enrol at the school.

All this information can be found here in our Enrolment Package which can be collected from our office or by completing the enrolment forms online


We encourage all families living in zone to complete a quick form stating your intention to enrol for any children under 5 years old. This form is available from our office or Intention to Enrol form

This information allows us to plan for future classes and to ensure we have teachers and rooms ready to accommodate our new entrant numbers.


Packs for pre-enrolment can be collected from our office. We suggest you collect these and take them away to complete as there are a number of forms to fill out. Families will need to bring an original birth certificate, vaccination certificate and two proof of residency within our enrolment zone. This information will need to be completed before your child's first day at school when she or he turns 5 years old.
