Cohort entry is when new entrants start school in groups through the year rather than on their fifth birthday.
At Te Pahu School, we have adopted a policy of cohort entry, new entrants are able to start school in cohorts but only after they have turned five. There are two entry points per term, one on the first day of term, and one at a mid-point during a term.
For Further information, feel free to contact the school office or visit the Ministry of Education Website.
Te Pahu School is a full primary school, nestled on the northern foothills of Mt Pirongia, 25 kilometres southwest of Hamilton, and 23 kilometres northwest of Te Awamutu. The school is situated in a rural locality, although a good proportion of parents commute to work in the immediate urban centres.
Te Pahu School participates in sporting and cultural activities with nearby schools in the Lower Waipa Area. Some curriculum activities such as technicraft, necessitate the transport of pupils to the nearest urban facilities. This is made possible due to a supportive parent body.
Te Pahu School is an integral part of a very strong community and the use of its amenities by the residents is encouraged.
Please feel free to contact us at the school office if you have any further questions.
