Thank you for considering Emmanuel Christian School as an option for your child’s schooling in the coming years. We welcome enquiries from all new families. Choosing a school for your child is an important decision and our school has many advantages for your family. 

Our school is small enough for us to know every student and large enough to give a range of quality learning opportunities in a healthy environment with proven success for every child. 

Our high expectations, values of Excellence, Christ-like character, Service and Wisdom guide our approach to teaching and learning from a Christian World View and are embedded in all we do. We encourage you to visit our school and discover quality Christian education.

Places at Emmanuel Christian School are becoming sought after. If you would like to enrol your child or visit the school contact the school office. The Principal or a senior member of staff will be more than happy to show you around the school and answer any questions you may have. 

Office contact 03 3593595 or email: office@emmanuelchristian.school.nz

We accept enrolments for Primary aged children from years 1 to 6 and Middle school students from years 7 to 10.

Moving to New Zealand from another country  is a significant decision for any family. At Emmanuel Christian School we understand the choices families make to give their child the best possible opportunities for their education in a safe caring environment.  


Attendance Dues, Activity Fees and the Voluntary Donation are three types of payment to the school: 

Attendance Dues are payable to the Emmanuel Proprietor Trust for the provision of and maintenance of school property (Buildings). Attendance dues are compulsory fees.

Activity fees are additional payments incurred by students throughout the year for example, swimming lessons, transport, school camps, stationery.

The Voluntary Donation is a per student payment, is a voluntary payment made to the Emmanuel Proprietors Trust. This money is used to provide resources and staff professional development directly related to the Schools Christian Character. This is not funded by the government and allows us to develop this critical component of the school.
