Out of Zone Enrolment for the Year of 2020

The board invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their children at Sylvia Park School in 2020.

To apply for enrolment complete a pre-enrolment form by clicking the button below and return by posting to:

Sylvia Park School
3 Longford St
Mt Wellington 1060

Or emailing to office@sylviapark.school.nz

Or hand delivering to the office.

The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone places is

Tuesday 24th September, 2019.

The board has determined that 60 places across all year levels are likely to be available for out of zone students in 2020. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone. A description of the school zone can be found on our enrol page.

If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot is required it will be held on Thursday 26th September, 2019. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.

Our School and Community Vision

When students leave Sylvia Park School we would like them to…

  • Achieve at or above national norms in literacy and numeracy to maximise all learning.
  • Demonstrate initiative to contribute positively within a changing society.
  • Be confident in their own identity.
  • Show resilience and flexibility to overcome challenges.
  • Maintain effective relationships based on tolerance, respect and honesty within a diverse community. 

Welcome to Sylvia Park School

Tēnā koutou katoa

Thanks for dropping by our website. I hope you have a chance to trawl through it and get a sense of what life is like here at our beautiful school. 

Sylvia Park School school is full of the finest children, staff and whānau that I have ever had the privilege to work with, and learn alongside. It makes turning up to work each day a joy.

We never fail to get excited about the things we can achieve as a collective that we would never be able to achieve alone. Each term we ask big questions that we all work together to try and answer. We call this our school-wide inquiry. We challenge ourselves to answer the question in a way that is real and meaningful. At the end of every term you will see our students applying the learning they have undertaken in real and meaningful ways. We love to see as many of our whānau taking part throughout our school-wide inquiry.

Myself, and all of the staff, are always more than happy to meet with you to discuss, celebrate and share the needs and achievements of your children so please don’t ever hesitate to approach any of us. 

Barbara Ala'alatoa - Principal
