Enrolment Process

Our mission is to be a Christian School that partners with whanau to produce young people who know who they are, whose they are and what they are called to do.

As a kura, we believe in God as the Creator of the Universe, the Bible as His inspired Word and acceptance of, and a continuing relationship with His son Jesus as required for eternal salvation.

Enrolment at Kaitaia Abundant Life School is based on the school’s Christian special character which is the key underwriting factor in the school’s integration agreement. According to that agreement: “the school is established for parents choosing a God-centred’ Biblical world-view, Christian education for their children”. The special character is determined by the Kaitaia Abundant Life Centre Proprietors.
The following considerations are important in any enrolment application:
  • Applicants’ connection to the school’s Christian special character as outlined in the integration agreement.
  • It is the intention of the school to partner with families as outlined in the school’s mission statement.
  • The school has limitations on its total roll and it is the desire of the Board of Trustees to maintain smaller class sizes.  Consequently, classroom size constraints may affect entry.
  • Parents must be in total agreement with the school’s mission and vision statements, and the direction and purpose of the school.
Attendance at our school is not compulsory for any parent – we are a school of choice.  That is, parents/caregivers can choose to enrol their children here, actively partnering with us as a Christian school.  Alternatively, parents can choose other schools of their own choosing.  To this end, alignment with our values is key and is naturally agreed upon as we ‘do school’ together in partnership with our whanau.
