enrolment scheme

Please check to see if you live (or intend to live) within our enrolment zone by clicking on the 'enrolment zone' link.  We are not currently accepting any out of zone enrolments unless an older sibling is already enrolled. 

Effective from 02 February 2009 

The guidelines for development and operation of enrolment schemes are issued under section 11G (3) of the Education Act 1989 for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised. 

Home Zone

All students who live within the home zone described below (and shown on the attached map) shall be eligible to enrol at the school. Starting at the intersection of State Highway 1 and the Nikau Road off ramp travel north-east to the intersection. Turn south on to Razorback Road and continue along both sides of Razorback Road and then back on to State Highway 1 before travelling east along State Highway 2 as far as number 395 / 370a (Serpell Road excluded). 

The zone retraces back along SH2 and on to SH1 to continue south before taking the Pioneer Road off ramp.  Travel north along Pioneer Road and then turn south-west on to Miller Road.  At the end of Miller Road continue south across country out to meet the Waikato River.  Follow the rivers edge east then turn directly north and travel across country to meet the end of Smeed Road (Trig Road included). 

Travel along Smeed Road and include up to 118 / 97  Bollard Road before travelling north-west along Whangarata Road (150 / 141 and below excluded).  Continue along Ridge Road right back to the starting point at Nikau Road. 

All residential addresses on included sides of boundary roads and all no exit roads off included sides of boundary roads are included in the zone unless otherwise stated.

Out of Zone Enrolments 

Each year the Board of Trustees will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The Board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received. 

Applications for enrolments will be processed in the following order of priority: 

First Priority This priority is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for Education. 

Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students. 

Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students. 

Fourth Priority will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school. 

Fifth Priority will be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school. 

Sixth Priority will be given to all other applicants. If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. 

Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
