2022 Whakatapoko – Enrolments

The time line has not been set.  Please follow our enrolment process and we will contact you when this starts.

Atā whakatapoko – How to enrol

We are a designated character school established under Section 156 of the Education Act 1989. The students who are 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 ballot at every year level. This includes students who are in our home zone and current siblings.  Balloting the home zone is different from a regular school where students who live in the home zone are automatically enrolled.  Current families with siblings wanting to attend, must also follow our enrolment process.

Te hāpete – Our enrolment process
  1. Rēhita – Register your interest and attend a tour
    You must register your interest so we can contact you when we run an enrolment process.  You also need to attend a tour so you can view our school and see how we operate.  Our Director (Principal) takes the tour and there is the opportunity for questions as part of this process.   If you are unable to make the date you booked, please fill this form in again for a future tour.  Due to demand, we are unable to offer tours or visits outside our scheduled dates.

    When we start an enrolment process, we will email whānau who have registered their interest with the next steps.
