Future Education Provision in the Mount Maunganui and Pāpāmoa area

The Tauranga / Bay of Plenty region is New Zealand’s fastest growing region. Additional primary school provision is planned in the Pāpāmoa area with Te Manawa o Pāpāmoa School opening in term 1 2022. This school will have an enrolment scheme home zone and this will have flow on effects for other primary school enrolment scheme home zones in the area.

The population forecasts also put pressure on Mount Maunganui Intermediate School, Mount Maunganui College and Pāpāmoa College. The Ministry of Education would like feedback on how the schools can best cater for this ongoing growth in the coming years. Mount Maunganui College will also be implementing an enrolment scheme home zone which will begin in term 1 2022.

Changes to enrolment schemes impact surrounding school enrolment scheme home zones, thus feedback on these proposed changes is being sought prior to zones being decided upon and then changes implemented for 2022 and beyond.

The process will involve the creation of new enrolment schemes for Mount Maunganui College and Te Manawa o Pāpāmoa School, as well as amendments to the enrolment schemes of:

  • Arataki School
  • Golden Sands School
  • Mount Maunganui Intermediate School
  • Mount Maunganui Primary School
  • Omanu School
  • Pāpāmoa College
  • Pāpāmoa Primary School
  • Tahatai Coast School
  • Te Akau Ki Pāpāmoa School

Community meetings were held in mid-March. Discussion from these meetings and meetings with other stakeholders have been used to construct an online survey. Further information about this engagement process and a link to the survey can be found in the information sheet below, and at www.dandgconsulting.co.nz/tauranga
