Te Kamo Intermediate Extended

Closed 9 Jun 2024

Opened 25 May 2024


Thank you to all the whānau and wider community that submitted feedback and response to the consultation for Te Kamo Intermediate School. The Ministry appreciates the time taken to consider the proposed enrolment zone.

One of the challenges when developing a zone for an intermediate school is ensuring that the surrounding full primary schools or high schools which include Years 7 and 8 in the area are not disadvantaged by the zone.

The map below and attached written directions and maps have changed to include a portion of Kaurihohore Primary and Hurupaki Primary enrolment schemes. This change gives some of the students of those schools another option to enrol at an intermediate. These students will not be bypassing another school to attend Te Kamo.

The feedback regarding the inclusion of the Glenbervie area was divided. As there is Year 7 and 8 provision closer to this area than Te Kamo Intermediate School, the Ministry has decided to exclude the Glenbervie area from the proposed zone.  For those whānau who have a long history and affiliation with the school, the students will be a high priority on the ballot for out of zone places. The Education and Training Act outlines the priorities as:

  • First Priority special programme approved by the Secretary for Education. (this priority may not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme that meets the criteria)
  • 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.

As a result of the constructive feedback as part of this consultation, the shape for the Te Kamo Intermediate zone has been proposed to change. Due to this proposed change, the Ministry is seeking further feedback on the proposed zone, particularly with a focus on any feedback that we have not received in the previous consultation. Please provide feedback by 9 June 2024.
