Enrolment of Students who live in zone
The school zone website gives you information about school zones for New Zealand schools. You can search by your home address and see which schools you are eligible to enrol at.

Please note that we do not accept enrolments from overseas students who are staying in New Zealand briefly or visiting New Zealand on holiday.
Out of zone enrolments
The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education Act 1989.
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 may also do this term by term if it wishes.) 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 will be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in the Special Programme run by the school and approved by the Secretary for Education.
- Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students. Proof of sibling relationship is required.
- Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students. Proof of sibling relationship is required.
- Fourth Priority will be given to applicants who are children of board employees
- Fifth 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 a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989.
Special Programme Enrolment
Whānau Ata is the school’s Immersion Unit. The unit is based on the principles of Kaupapa Maori which recognises, values and validates Te Reo me Ona Tikanga Maori. Our school is fortunate to be able to provide Maori Education to those Whānau who wish to use this facility. We currently have three immersion classes where we deliver over eighty percent of the curriculum in Maori.
The criteria for enrolment in Whānau Ata is 3 years at a Kohanga Reo, or enrolment at another Kura Kaupapa or Immersion Unit.
The Board of Trustees has determined that the capacity of Whānau Ata is 54 students.
