Registration - Registration Information & Forms


New Westminster Schools has ongoing registration at individual schools.
If your child was in an SD No. 40 (New Westminster) school or program last year, they are automatically registered at the same school or program they attended last year in the next grade, as noted on their report card. If your child is new to our district, please follow the links to learn more about registering your child.

Registration Information & Forms

School Registration process:

  1. Download the fillable registration form and checklist, type your answers on this form, save and print.
  2. Use the District Catchment Map to locate your catchment school. If you are unsure call the school to confirm by providing your address. A student will normally attend the school located in the catchment area in which their parents or legal guardians  reside unless there is no physical, resource or program space available.
  3. Bring the form to your child’s school, along with the necessary documentation listed in the Parent-Fillable Registration Form to complete your child’s registration, preferably between 9:30 and 2:30 pm.

Kindergarten registration for the 2018 ‐ 2019 school year begins on Monday, January 8th at elementary schools. All students register at their neighbourhood school.
