Kia ora koutou.  Hello everyone.

As another busy term comes to an end  we cannot believe we will be entering the final term for 2018 in just a couple of weeks time. This year is passing by quickly! Many thanks to all our families who have supported the school so far this year whether as a sports coach or manager, parent helper, supporting the fundraising efforts of FoTS such as the Quiz Night and disco this term and also helping others through Daffodil Day. It’s been a busy and productive term. Have a good break and we will see you on 15th October.

2019 Enrolment Applications

If you have a child turning 5 next year or know of anyone else  who has a child and wants them to come to Glamorgan School in 2019 please let the office know as soon as possible so we can plan classes for 2019. All in zone children are guaranteed a place.

Out of zone applications

Any out of zone applications for 2019 will to go into a ballot held in October, if we have any places to offer. All out of zone applications must be in to the school office by 17th October.

Please note: if you have a child enrolled out of zone already this does not give any other siblings in your family an automatic place at the school. Each out of zone child must go through the ballot process and therefore it is essential you apply now.
