Enrolment Zone

Maungaraki School has an enrolment scheme in place. Under this scheme, new students living within the home zone are entitled to enrol in the school at any time.

Home Zone

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

The zone included all of Dowse Drive and Oakleigh Street and continues south down Dowse Drive to include Banksia Grove, Cypress Drive and all of the streets which exit off it.  Continue south down Cypress Drive, Cedar Street and Mulberry Streets.  The zone also includes Chestnut Grove and all streets which exit off it.

The zone then turns south to the intersection of State Highway 2 and Dowse Drive and continues north to Acacia Avenue (all of Acacia Avenue and the streets which exit it are included).

The zone continues north along Protea Street, then west along Maungaraki Road to a line perpendicular to and including 107 Maungaraki Road and conitnues along Oakleigh Street until it intersects with Dowse Drive.

All streets which exit off the named streets are included (with the exception of MIROMIRO ROAD). 

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

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 for Education.

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 or fifth groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11g (1) of the Education Act 1989.  Parents will be informaed 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 or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.

Q. If I live within the School Zone are my children entitled to attend Maungaraki School?

A. Yes, you are entitled by right to attend Maungaraki School. The Ministry has assured us that they will provide additional funding to build as many classrooms as necessary. Unfortunately the funding will not be available until we have the enrolments, so the school will have a period when all rooms are in use and inside space will be at a premium. Your children do not have to attend Maungaraki School.

Q. If I have a child attending Maungaraki School and we move out of Zone, can my child remain at Maungaraki School?

A. Yes, your child may remain at Maungaraki School. Siblings do not have an automatic right of attending our school. At this stage it is unclear if we will be in a position to accept enrolments of siblings.
