It is likely that we will have spaces for out of zone enrolments each year.

Each year the School 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.  This will be done by September 1st. 

It is also likely that at other points throughout the year, spaces will be available for those on the waiting list or expressions of interest. If needed, we will also hold a Term 2 ballot.

In 2023 we have expressions of interest and some students on a waitlist therefore will hold a ballot for out of zone students in week 6 of Term 2 - Friday 2nd of June. This will be advertised and the waitlist and expressions of interest contacted.

The Board will publish this information by notice in our community newsletter 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 and starting dates for successful students. 

If you are interested in going on the waiting list, please pick up an enrolment form from the office, call (09) 8109855 or email office@taupaki.school.nz.
