Enrolment Paperwork, Attendance Dues and Voluntary Donations
We encourage parents to enrol children well before their fifth birthday. You are welcome to visit the classroom before your child starts so you can meet the teacher and observe classroom routines.
All initial inquiries and completion of the enrolment forms are made through the school office and the Principal. We will discuss obligations of attendance and clarify enrolment procedures with you.

If you are Catholic, you will need to visit Christ the King Parish Priest, Father Benedict Francis, to discuss the signing of a Preference of Enrolment Form before your child can be enrolled.

Attendance Dues and Voluntary Donations
Attendance Dues and Financial Assistance
Attendance Dues are a compulsory payment and are approved by the Minister of Education under the terms of the Education and Training Act 2020 and are a condition of enrolment at Christ the King Catholic School. All students attending Catholic Schools in New Zealand are charged attendance dues.
Attendance Dues are used to repay loans for building works done at schools in the Auckland Diocese, property related costs including school building works, building insurance and costs directly associated with the administration of attendance dues.
Attendance Dues are collected by Christ the King Catholic School on behalf of the school’s Proprietor, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. The attendance dues collected by Christ the King Catholic School are forwarded to Auckland Common Fund Limited, a company established by the proprietors of Catholic integrated schools in the Diocese of Auckland responsible for the collection of attendance dues.
Attendance Dues can be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, per term or by regular instalment.
