Enrolment Scheme

Enrolment at our school is governed by an enrolment scheme. The board has determined that up to 10 places will be available for out-of-zone students in our first enrolment period for 2023. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.

2022 enrolment periods have closed. For students seeking enrolment during 2023, the dates are set in the chart below.

Enrolment dates for 2024 are set at the September Board Meeting each year. For enquiries about future OOZ enrolments please contact the office.

If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. Parents will be informed of the outcome of their application within three working days.

Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend to enrol their child at any time during this year or the next should also notify the school as soon as possible to assist the school to plan appropriately.

An enrolment notice will be published on the website and newsletters and emailed to families who live out of the zone each term. A copy may also be requested from the school office – email office@paparangi.school.nz. We ask out of zone families to please ensure your contact details, including address, are always up to date.
