School Zone

Whangaparaoa Primary School has an enrolment scheme in place. Please note families must provide proof of address on enrolment. Below is the map of the enrolment scheme area (outlined in blue). Under this scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone described underneath.

Home Zone 

All students who live within the home zone described below, and as shown on the attached map, shall be entitled to enrol at Whangaparaoa Primary School.

Starting at Stanmore Bay Park the zone travels east around the coastline to the end of the reserve beyond Tindalls Beach. It then moves south-east across country to the Whangaparaoa Road / Gulf Harbour roundabout, and continues to the south coast of the Peninsula so as to include all of Hobbs Road, Roberts Road, Laguna Place, Balboa Drive and Beauvoir Avenue.
The zone then continues west around the coastline to the end of Fairhaven Walk to include all of Wade River Road.
Retracting back along Wade River Road, (Scott Road excluded), to the Rishworth Avenue roundabout, the zone moves north up Rishworth Avenue to meet Whangaparaoa Road at numbers 650 / 651. All of Moera Place, Barwick Place, Elan Place, Karepiro Drive and Sidwell Place are included.
Crossing Whangaparaoa Road the zone moves north overland to follow the stream along the Whangaparaoa College, Rata Reserve, and Stanmore Bay Park boundaries, back to the starting point. (Glanville Close, Stanmore Bay Road, and Brightside Road 179 / 180 and above included)

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

Out of Zone Enrolments

 Each year the Board of Trustees 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 enrolments will be processed in the following order of priority:

  • First Priority - This priority is not applicable at this school because the school does not yet 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 priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) on 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 will require to give proof of a sibling relationship.
The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education Act 1989.
The enrolments scheme may be viewed at the school office where copies of the map are also available.
