Enrolment Zone – Effective from 01 January 2023

The Ministry of Education is developing an enrolment scheme for Parakai School along with other schools in the country. This will be in effect for the beginning of term 1 in 2023.
  • All currently enrolled students have a safe place in our school.
  • All students who enrol and start school by the end of the 2022 year will have a secure school placement at Parakai School.
 
Home Zone
All students who live within the home zone described below shall be eligible to enrol at Parakai School: 
Starting at the intersection of Parkhurst Road and State Highway 16 travel north along Parkhurst Road until South Head Road, including both sides of the road.  Along Parkhurst Road the zone also extends out to the end of Fordyce Road, and includes Parakai Avenue, Waiwera Avenue, Te Maou Avenue, Chic Gardens, Springs Road and Green Road, and any no-exit roads off those roads.  At South Head Road travel northeast, including both sides of the road up to 901 South Head Road.  Along South Head Road the zone also includes Evans Road, Tarawera Road, Slater Road, Haranui Road, and any no-exit roads off those roads.
All no exit roads within the boundaries described above are included in the zone unless otherwise stated.
 
Out of Zone Enrolments 
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. 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 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 any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school. 
Fifth Priority:  will be given to any applicant who is 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 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) of the Education Act 1989.
