Starting kura is an exciting time and an important milestone in your child’s life and maybe also your life – particularly if this is your first child to come to kura.
At Te Kura o Hato Hōhepa Te Kāmura, we support whānau and tamariki who desire a reo Māori and Catholic education pathway. We offer two immersions programme:
It is our mission to grow lifelong learners; confident in their identity, language, and culture and grounded in their faith.
CDA Application for Enrolment
Applying for preference enrolment is not a guarantee of acceptance. The decision whether to grant a preference enrolment is made by either the Parish Priest, or their delegated representative, using the mandated criteria below:
The child has been baptised, or is being prepared for Baptism, in the Catholic Church.
The child’s parents/guardians have already allowed one or more of its siblings to be baptised in the Catholic faith.
At least one parent/guardian is a Catholic, and although their child has not yet been baptised, the child’s participation in the life of the school could lead to the parents having the child baptised.
With the agreement of the child’s parent/guardian, a significant familial adult such as a grandparent, aunt or uncle who is actively involved in the child’s upbringing, undertakes to support the child’s formation in the faith and practices of the Catholic Church.
One or both of a child’s non-Catholic parents/guardians is preparing to become a Catholic.
This school has a maximum of 30 places.
There are currently 5 places available in 2021.
The school roll is at 65% of its maximum
The Board will use the following priority order for enrolling non-preference applicants:
The siblings of non-preference students already in the school.
Siblings of former non-preference students.
The children of staff or Board members who seek to enrol their children
Non-preference students coming from another integrated school with the same Catholic character
All other applicants.
Where there are more applicants than places available within the same priority category, they will be accepted in order of the date and time the pre-enrolments form was received. If pre-enrolment dates are the same, allocation will be via ballot.
Non-preference students who cannot be enrolled immediately, may choose to be placed on a waiting list sorted in order of the priority conditions described above. Students on this list are wait listed by date and number and will be contacted if places become available.
Parents and caregivers of those applicants on the waiting list will be notified when and if places become available for their child. Parents and caregivers will then have seven days to confirm their enrolment. If no confirmation is received the applicant will be removed from the waiting list and the position may be offered to the next priority student.
