Enrolment Scheme : Papakowhai School

HOME ZONE

 All students who live within the home zone described below and shown on the attached map shall be entitled to enrol at the school.

Papakowhai School Home Zone

The home zone bounds are described as follows:

 

In the west:

 The zone is bounded in the west by State Highway 1, between the intersections of the Highway with Whitford Brown Avenue in the south and a point on the highway due west of the northern most part of Papakowhai Road in the north (where it becomes Paremata Crescent).  The zone continues along a line from this point, to the northern most part of Papakowhai Road and continues eastward along Paremata Crescent until its intersection with Paremata Drive.  Addresses on both sides of Papakowhai Road and Paremata Crescent up to the intersection are in zone.  Addresses on Paremata Drive are not in zone.

 

In the north:

 Directly south of the intersection of Paremata Crescent and Paremata Drive, the zone perimeter extends along a line to the north of the following streets, that encompasses all properties with access to Eskdale Road and it’s side streets to the north, then all properties with access to Lauderdale Road and any side streets off it to the north, then all properties with access to Tirowhanga Road and any side streets off it to the north and west, until the intersection of Tirowhanga Road and Kahu Road.  Kahu Road is not in zone.

 

In the east:

 The eastern bound extends in a line from the intersection of Kahu Road and Tirowhanga Road around all addresses to the east of Tirowhanga Road with direct access to it, including the addresses on Makora Grove, with access direct access to Makora Grove.  To the south of Makora Grove, the zone boundary extends roughly north west along the boundary between the suburbs of Paremata and Ascott Park (which coincides with the southern boundaries of properties with direct access to and south of Makora Grove), until the intersection of the suburban boundaries of Paremata, Ascott Park and Papakowhai.  From this intersecting point, the zone boundary continues toward the south along the suburban boundary between Papakowhai and Ascott Park, until the boundary reaches and is coincident with the point where Whitford Brown Avenue becomes Warspite Avenue. 

 

The zone boundary then continues south following the east most line behind the rear of the houses on Fiordland Place, Tararua Close, Te Puia Drive and Catlins Glen.

 

In the south:

 The zone is bounded in the south from the end of Catlins Glen to the end of Sumner Terrace and along the rear of the houses on Kaimai Place. The boundary continues as a line to the intersection of Frances Brown Avenue with John Burke Drive and Okowai Road, such that address numbers 18 and below on Queen Charlotte Drive, Hamner Close, Whangapeka Way and Frances Brown Avenue addresses are in zone. John Burke Drive addresses are not in zone. From the intersection of Frances Brown Avenue with John Burke Drive and Okowai Road the home zone boundary is Okowai Road to Whitford Brown Avenue to State Highway 1 (the starting point).

 

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

 Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students may be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. This will enable the Board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

 

OUT OF ZONE ENROLMENTS

 Each year the Board will determine the number of places, if any, which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. If there are places, 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 applicants who are children of former students.

 Fifth priority              will be given to applicants who are 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.

 

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth priority 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 informed 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.
