Class Visits for 5 Year Olds


From January 2020, all new entrant students will start on one of these dates, once they have turned 5: We acknowledge this may be disruptive for some families, but as the school has grown and we have a large number of entrants every year, we consider this the best options for new entrants and the school. This change will not affect any students that is not a new entrant.

New Entrant 2020 start dates:

Term 1: Wednesday 29th January and Monday 2nd March

Term 2: Tuesday 28th April and Tuesday 2nd June

Term 3: Monday 20th July and Monday 24th August

Term 4: Monday 12th October and Monday 16th November

New Entrant Teachers:

  • Tamaki Saito

The Year 0/1 class is called the Tui Learning Hub.  Your child will have a base teacher but will be taught by all three teachers (currently two but will add one more as hub grows) throughout the year.  The Tui Learning Hub is a flexible learning environment (open plan) where students will develop the foundation skills they need to be successful with their learning.

At Waterview Primary School we aim to make your child’s transition to school as seamless as 

possible. Students are entitled to 3 school visits 1 month prior to their birthday. A visit includes 1 learning block and a break time. Pre-Visits are scheduled for Fridays only.  Please contact Jay Jay Thompson on one month prior to your child turning 5 to arrange times for these visits.
