All students who live within the home zone described below (and shown on the attached map) shall be entitled to enrol at the school.

The zone includes all residential addresses on:
Sulphur Point to the Judea intersection at the Judea Bridge. Follow the Kopuerorea Stream which will form the Eastern Boundary. Take a line from the Kopuerorea Stream where it meets State Highway 29 to the intersection of Cambridge Road and State Highway 29. Continue the line to the Wairoa River. This line forms the Southern Boundary. Follow the Wairoa River towards its mouth then westward to include all of Oliver Road and Walden Lane. Continue a line to the intersection of State Highway 2 and Te Puna Station Road. Continue northwards along Te Puna Station Road to its intersection with Teihana Road. Continue a line out of the Wairoa River mouth. This is the Western Boundary of the home zone.

Also included within the Home Zone would be:
  • All residences that directly border the portions of the boundary roads mentioned above.
  • Proof of residence within the zone may be required.
  • Each year applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date that will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will enable the Board to assess the number of places that can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Out of Zone Enrolments:
Each year the Board will determine the number of places that are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. Yhe 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 enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:
  • First priority will be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school and approved by the Secretary of Education. The school currently does not offer such a programme.
  • Second priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
  • Third priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
  • 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 and fifth priority groups than there are places available, a selection within the priority group will be by 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 and third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
