School Zone and Enrolment Scheme

Effective from Term 1 2021

The guidelines for development and operation of enrolment schemes are issued under section 11G (3) of the Education Act 1989 for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.

Home Zone

All students who live within the home zone described below shall be entitled to enrol at Whenuapai School.

Starting at the intersection of SH16 Twin Coast Discovery and Coatesville Riverhead Highway, travel south on SH16.

At the roundabout of SH16, Brigham Creek Road and Fred Taylor Drive, travel south down Fred Taylor Drive. Continue along Fred Taylor Drive to the roundabout of Fred Taylor Drive, Te Oranui Way and Don Buck Road. Hailes Road and Baker Lane included. Matakohe Road is not included.

The zone then re-joins SH16 and travels east along Upper Harbour Motorway. The Northwest and Westgate town centres are not included in the zone.

At the Brigham Creek Road off-ramp of the Upper Harbour Motorway, the zone includes Kauri Road and travels around the Whenuapai Peninsula shoreline to the beginning point of the intersection of SH16 Twin Coast Discovery and Coatesville Riverhead Highway.

The zone does not include Sinton Road.

All residential addresses on included sides of boundary roads and all no exit roads off included sides of boundary roads are included in the zone unless otherwise stated.

Whenuapai School Zone Map

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Special Programmes

This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a Special programme approved by the Secretary.

Out of Zone Enrolments

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 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         This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a Special programme approved by the Secretary.

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 any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

Fifth Priority         will 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         will be given to all other applicants.

* Depending on factors such as the school roll,  out of zone enrolments may be considered. Contact the School Office for details.

Out of Zone Enrolments for 2021

Currently Whenuapai School only has positions available for siblings of current students (Second Priority, out of zone applicants). No other out of zone positions are available for 2021 and therefore no ballot will be held.
