Enrolment Process for 2023

Waikowhai Intermediate now offers electronic enrolments.  To access the electronic enrolment form:

  • Click on the link below - highlighted in red.

  • Enter our unique school code '1548'

  • Fill in the form.

https://enrol.etap.co.nz

The parts of the enrolment form that are highlighted in pink are compulsory fields.  The system will not allow you to proceed to the next page until these fields are completed.  You will notice on some pages you will be asked to upload various documents.  When documents have been uploaded correctly, the file name will turn blue.  If your documents fail to load you can still proceed to the next page of the enrolment form.  If you have problems uploading these documents, these can be sent directly to reception@wai-int.school.nz.  An enrolment cannot be fully processed without supporting documentation.

Supporting documentation needed are:

  • Eligibility criteria – this can be a New Zealand Birth Certificate, New Zealand Passport, Citizenship Certificate or a Student Visa

     

  •  NZ born student – Birth Certificate

  • NZ Citizen – New Zealand Passport or Citizenship Certificate

  • Non NZ Citizen – Student Visa or Permanent Resident Visa

 

  • Proof of Address – a utility bill/rental agreement, something that has your name and address on it.  This is only needed for in zone applications.

 

  • Immunisation Forms – if your child is immunised, please provide a copy of their records.

 

  • Cybersafety Contract – this needs to be signed and dated by the student and parent/caregiver.  A chrome book will not be issued without a signed copy of this contract.

For those unable to do this, you can still access the enrollment form from the tab below.  This can be scanned and emailed to reception@wai-int.school.nz.  Alternatively, you can pop into the school office during school hours and collect a hard copy.

Friday 25th November - 9.00 - 9.55am - Year 6 students visit to meet classes and teachers for 2023.

All 2023 Year 7 students meet in the hall for a 9.00am start.  this is an important day on our school calendar.  All enrolments that are accepted are placed into their 2023 classes on this day so they can meet their classmates and teacher.  We find this is very useful to orientate children to Waikowhai Intermediate and take away any anxiety that they may have over the summer break.

Please come and sit down in the school hall by 8.15am.  This is a day for our year 7 students only
