Expression of interest tours

Due to the Covid environment that we have been in, we, unfortunately, were not able to hold as many expression of interest tours as we would have liked; however, with the move to orange in the traffic light system, we have managed to schedule the following. These tours will be a student-led tour followed by an information session with our Principal, Mr Shaun Brooker and our Head of Schools.   Times for the EOI tours are 9:15 - 10:3Oam.

The dates are as  follows:

  • 11 May - 9:15 - 10:30am:
  • 19 May - 9:15 - 10:30am
  • 25 May - 9:15 - 10:30am
  • 2 June - 9:15 - 10:30am
  • 8 June - 9:15 - 10:30am

Please contact us at reception@hamiltonchristian.school.nz to register your interest in any of the above mentioned EOI tours.

Open Day

We invite you to attend our Open Day on Friday, 1 July at 9:30am. This will be a time to experience who we are as a school by having a student-led tour and an address by our Principal, Mr Shaun Brooker and the Head of Primary, Middle and Secondary school.

Please contact us at reception@hamiltonchristian.school.nz to register your interest in attending our Open Day.

Please do not wait to attend an expression of interest tour or the Open Day before submitting your application (click here to access this).

Enrolment review

We have two reviews of our enrolment numbers for the following year's intake; typically, these are mid-year and towards the end of  Term 3. The review dates are as follows:

  • 1st review of numbers will be done in week 1 of Term 3 (Monday 25th - Friday 29 July)
  • 2nd review of numbers will be done around the 13 September

All letters of offer will have a two week acceptance period, with the first review acceptance due within two weeks of our 1st review and the second review acceptance within two weeks of the 2nd review.

Once the review process has been completed, an offer of place will be sent to families – usually within a week of the review date. If your child is not offered a place in a class, you will get the option of being placed on our waitlist.

Please feel free to contact us using the contact form below should you have any queries.
