Nau Mai, Welcome.
Our 2022 and 2023 enrolment processes are now closed. Please register your interest, and you will be contacted when we start our 2024 enrolment process in May 2023.
ATĀ WHAKATAPOKO- HOW TO ENROL
We are a designated character school established under Section 156 of the Education Act 1989. The students eligible for enrolment are those whose parents accept the designated character of the school as set out in the New Zealand Education Gazette notice of 4 April 2013. We have an Enrolment Scheme.
As we have more interest than spaces available, we must ballot our home zone at every year level. This includes siblings of current students who must also follow our enrolment process. Because we are a special character school, balloting the home zone is different from a regular school where students who live in the home zone are automatically enrolled.
TE HĀPETE O MUA – OUR PRE-ENROLMENT PROCESS
- Rēhita – Register your interest and attend a tour (essential)
You must register your interest so we can contact you when we run a pre-enrolment process. You also need to attend a tour to view our school and see how we operate. Our Senior Leadership Team take the tour, and there is the opportunity for questions as part of this process. If you cannot make the date you booked, please fill this form in again for a future tour. Due to the huge demand, we cannot offer tours or visits outside our scheduled dates. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1s7XsIgsyaUl1zC8R0cmYPlRfwMGsC-j4r-kaKWGVlk4/
- Te Kōwhiri – Pre-enrolment and ballot information
When we start a pre-enrolment process, we will email whānau who have registered their interest with the next steps. These are:
A link for you to forward to your student’s current pre-school or school to fill in.
2B Whānau family caregiver information
A link for you to fill in, so we have the correct information for the ballot and to establish the suitability to work in our special character environment. We may contact whānau to come in for an interview if we need to discuss this further.
2023 WHAKATAPOKO – ENROLMENTS CLOSED
Our 2023 pre-enrolments closed on 14th July 2023 All families who had registered their interest by that date were sent the next steps to complete. We now have balloted waiting lists in place. Families who participated in this were all sent either offer of a place or a waiting list number on 5th August 2022.
