AUTOMATIC IN ZONE (HOME) PRE-ENROLMENT APPLICATION

It is important that parents advise the College in writing when a change of address occurs.
ENROLLING DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR
When enrolment has been confirmed you will be given details about starting school. We have a welcoming procedure so students are given tours of the school, advice about subjects and careful introductions are made into the classes.
NEW YEAR 7 INTAKE FOR THE FOLLOWING YEAR
An important step in a child’s life is making the move from primary to secondary schooling. Mahurangi College works closely with the local primary schools to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. Part of the transition programme includes:
Mahurangi staff visiting the students at their schools
Students having the opportunity to spend time at Mahurangi College on an orientation day the year before
Information open days for parents and whānau about the school
Once students start at Mahurangi College, Term 1 focuses on settling in and a well established peer support programme takes place for the first 6 weeks of school.
