Enrolment

Here at Totara College, we have a preferential and a non-preferential enrolment system, as detailed below.

A. Preference Enrolment Criteria

A preference of enrolment at Totara College of Accelerated Learning shall be given to those students with parents who have established a “particular or general connection” with the Special Character of the college. At least one parent/caregiver of the student must be a Christian believer, uphold Christian values and beliefs, and be able to present a letter of reference from their minister or priest.

At least one parent/caregiver of the student must respect and support the Special Character Definition of the college, and fully support the Dannevirke Christian Fellowship as having oversight as proprietors. They must be a regular attendee of a local Christian Church (at least once per month).

Applicants must be able to sign a College Covenant and uphold and actively support its intention and integrity.

N.B. It is important that those applying for preference of enrolment be able to accept and endorse the Special Character Statement found in this prospectus.

B. Non Preference Enrolment Criteria

A limited number of vacancies exist for students whose parents do not qualify for “preference of enrolment”. This number is limited to 10% of the college roll. Parents/caregivers of the student do not need to be“members” of a local Christian Church or have Christian convictions or beliefs. At least one parent/caregiver must accept the Special Character Definition of the college, and encourage their children to respect and comply with it. They must fully support the Dannevirke Christian Fellowship as having oversight as proprietors.
