All students who live within the school zone described below (map available at school office) shall be eligible to enrol at the school.
Starting to the West on SH 14 at the culvert bordered by safety barriers (ES number 787 included, road numbers 846 and 855 excluded), the zone travels east, including Hawken Road, turning up Millington Road and back down Golf Harbour Drive before continuing along SH 14. Including Te Hape Road and the Highfield Way subdivision, the zone goes as far as Pukenui Road (included) and then travels along Ngahere Drive, crosses the Raumanga Falls Reserve and follows the Te Hihi Stream south-west before crossing overland to the Otaika Valley Scenic Reserve. After following the western boundary of the reserve the zone crosses to the corner of Cemetery Road and Otaika Valley Roads before turning north-west and heading up Cemetery Road, including Riding Downs Way, to SH 14 and back to the starting point.
All residential addresses on both sides of the 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:
- This priority is not applicable at this school, because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for Education.
- Applicants who are siblings of current students.
- Applicants who are siblings of former students.
- Applicants who are children of board employees.
- 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. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.
Applicants seeking second or third priority status will be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
