In-Zone Enrolment

All students who live within the home zone described below (shown on the map when you mouse over) shall be entitled to enrol at the school. Enrolment forms are available from the school office. Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

The zone includes Campbell Crescent and extends east along both sides of Market Road through to and including #57, ending at the western side of the Market Rd overbridge (Motorway). The home zone does not cross the motorway at any point.

The home zone also extends south east from Market Road to Wairakei Street and then west along the northern side (even numbers only) of Campbell Road through to and including #104 (opposite Rawhiti Rd).  Rawhiti Road and all odd numbered addresses on Campbell Road are not included in the home zone.

The home zone boundary includes Twin Oaks Drive and Pohutukawa Drive and then extends west along Green Lane West to Manukau Road.  Manukau Road is not included in the home zone.

All residential addresses within the boundary roads mentioned above are included in the home zone including both even numbers between 168 and 536 and odd numbers between 73 and 267 Great South Road.

Each year, applications for enrolment for the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a specific date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulated in the area served by the school. This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Out of Zone Enrolment

Each year the board 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 circulated 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 enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

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

  • Second priority: must be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.

  • Third priority: must be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.

  • Fourth priority: must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

  • Fifth priority: must 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: must 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 issued by the Secretary for Education 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 may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
