The Board of Trustees operates a Ministry of Education approved Enrolment Scheme to prevent overcrowding, as the school receives more applications for enrolment than places available. The Scheme provides for automatic right of entry to those students who reside within the Whenuapai School zone. You can find out what school your are zoned for by going to TKI website.

*Please note that the Education Counts website has not yet been updated with Whenuapai Schools amended zone. Therefore a map of our new school zone (effective Term 1, 2021) is attached below for your reference. If you have any questions regarding our school zone please contact the office on 09 416 8779.

Enrolment Process and Documentation

Enrolments for all children are arranged through the school office. For the enrolment of New Entrants a birth certificate as verification of age and an immunisation certificate must be presented. Parents will be notified before the date of enrolment of two pre-school visits that will be available for them and their children to familiarise themselves with the class they will be joining and the simple routines.

Students from overseas who have moved to New Zealand must provide their passport and documentation showing evidence of New Zealand residency. An immunisation certificate for the student must also be provided.

Located near the upper reaches of the Waitemata Harbour, around twenty minutes drive from central Auckland, Whenuapai is on the urban/ rural fringe. Whenuapai is close to Hobsonville Road. This provides easy connection with Waitakere City and North Shore City.
