MOUNT Maunganui Primary School

school Zone

The enrolment zone boundary starts at the intersection of Adams Ave, Pilot Quay and the Mall, and travels south along the harbour shoreline, including any moorings, to a point parallel with 132, 124 and 114 Hull Road.   At this point the boundary travels east, and to the north of 132, 124 and 144 Hull Road (these addresses are excluded from the zone), and crosses the railway line.  The boundary travels to the roundabout of Hull Road and Totara Street.

From this roundabout the boundary travels eastward around the rear of addresses on the southern side of Hull Road and continues east to where the railway line crosses Hull Road.

The zone boundary then follows the railway line southward, before heading north-west along the centre of Dee Street, capturing odd-numbered addresses only.

The zone boundary travels to the intersection of Dee Street and Valley Road, then proceeds south, behind (and excluding) the odd-numbered addresses on Valley Road, to the rear of 165B Valley Road.

From the rear of 165B Valley Road, the boundary travels behind odd-numbered addresses on Moa Street, to the intersection of Moa Street and Ocean Beach Road.  All addresses on Moa Street are excluded from the zone.

The boundary travels across Ocean Beach Road, to capture number 3 Ocean Beach Road, and on to the shoreline.

The boundary travels north-west along the shoreline to the intersection of Marine Parade and Adams Avenue.

The boundary travels south-west along Adams Avenue, capturing addresses on both sides of this road, to the intersection of Adams Ave, Pilot Quay and The Mall.





Pre-school visiting info

 You will be invited to visit between 10:15am and 11:30am on a set Friday.  Dates will be sent to you before your child is due to start.  Here your child will meet the teacher and other children and join in with some learning.  We would love you to bring some morning tea so your child can experience the playground situation when visiting and to meet other parents.  We will share school information also.  There will also be an opportunity to stay after morning tea and join with our Junior Mounties Explorers which begins at 11:30 and runs for about 45 minutes (you don’t have to stay for the whole time, feel free to leave when you want).

Thanks for your interest in joining Mount Primary and enrolling via the Enrolment tab.  We look forward to meeting you!

Key Features of our International Student Programme

At various times over the last few years, individual students from many countries including India, Japan, South Korea and Brazil have attended this school. They have participated in all school activities offered to them to the benefit of their families, themselves and the other students who get the benefit of other perspectives.
As in the past, if we have space in classrooms, we will enrol international students on the understanding that our main aim is to provide them with a typical New Zealand Primary School experience.

Opportunities to converse in english

Having said that, we will continue to follow practices that are sensitive to the needs and values of all cultures in the school. If a student requires help with English as a Second Language, this will be provided for with extra English language tuition each morning.
For most of the school day each student will be attached to a regular classroom where they will receive schooling in the New Zealand curriculum for the remainder of the day.
If you would like to enrol your student at Mount Maunganui Primary School please fill out the enrolment form and return to the school.
