Open and Trial Days

 Open days visiting parent

Open Day 2023 - June 22nd : 10am-2pm

We are looking forward to hosting prospective parents and pupils as this is an important opportunity to see the school in operation. While we have a particular focus on new entrant five-year-old enrolments, enquiries for all year levels are welcomed. Please note that some year levels for 2024 entry have a waitlist.

If June 22nd is not convenient, please contact us to book a tour on another day. We can schedule an appointment with the Principal and/or arrange for a guided tour with a senior pupil. Let us know what works best for you and we will arrange a time to suit.

 Trial Days at Carncot

Trial Days

Another important part of the enrolment journey is often a ‘trial day’ for the prospective pupil. Carncot children love being the class buddy for the day, and take good care to make sure that their visitor feels comfortable and included. Again, let us know if you would like to arrange a trial day for your child.

Parent Testimonials

"I just wanted to pass on my absolute delight after reading the most recent newsletter. As you may be aware Sophie was diagnosed as dyslexic at the start of last year by a SPELD assessor, after Shelley recommended we get it done.

We have had nothing but praise for the way the teachers at Carncot have worked with Sophie and have noticed her go from strength to strength in both her reading/writing but also most importantly for us, her self-confidence.

Reading Juliet's article brought tears to my eyes, because everything I have learnt since we began our dyslexia journey is being addressed and exceeded by what Carncot is doing – for all students. My colleagues who have dyslexic children in public schools are blown away by it all and all wishing they lived in the Manawatu!

Emma (year 2) is not showing the same signs as Sophie did however Loris use of the decodable readers has meant that she is excelling at reading and spelling. It is so exciting to watch the girls flourish with the same teaching principles even though they (seem to) have such different learning abilities.

Just wanted to express our sincere gratitude that the school is following evidence based methodologies. It reinforces our commitment to the school and makes us immensely happy we are fortunate enough to have both our girls attend."
