Beginning School At FPS: New Entrant

If you are interested in joining our Fairlie Primary School community and would like more information about how to enrol, please phone our office on 03 6858 504 or email to request an enrolment pack or tour around the school.

At Fairlie Primary School our New Entrant programme builds on the skills your child has from earlier years and provides them with a welcoming environment, where they feel comfortable to take risks in learning and social settings.

When your child starts at Fairlie Primary School they will enter our New Entrant reception room, Korimako.  This is the classroom where children begin their schooling.  The teacher, Jane Wilks, works closely with each cohort of children and whanau to support them to settle into school, establish routines, develop relationships and begin their learning journey.

Children who are enrolled at Fairlie Primary School will have approximately 3 school visits prior to starting school.  On these visits children will have the opportunity to meet other children in their class, and begin to familiarise themselves with the class.  Visits are also a time for you to ask any questions you may have.
