Enrolment Scheme Waiuku College

Closes 13 Aug 2021

Opened 12 Jul 2021

Overview

The Ministry of Education is currently working with the Board of Waiuku College to establish a new enrolment scheme. 

Enrolment schemes are needed to help manage enrolments across schools.  This allows Boards to manage the risk of overcrowding, provides a fair and transparent process for enrolment and ensures we are making the best use of schooling facilities across the area.

Enrolment schemes do mean that choice is limited in this area – all families will have entitlement to attend a school that is reasonably convenient to them, but won’t have the same entitlement to enrol at other state schools.  (Note - students already enrolled at a school before a home zone is implemented or changed are entitled to stay at their current school).

It’s important that we hear and understand community perspectives before we establish these new schemes – especially the practical implication and whether the new boundaries accurately reflect the area.  Please have a look at the maps and overview information available below before you participate in the consultation process. 

This consultation process is about enrolment schemes, which determines the entitlement to enrol.  It’s important to note that a student’s eligibility to enrol may be different to their eligibility for School Transport assistance.  Further information about eligibility to school transport can be found here https://www.education.govt.nz/school/property-and-transport/transport/sta-eligibility/

The proposed enrolment scheme map, written description and factsheet for Waiuku College can be found in files attached on the bottom of the page (please read these before taking part in the consultation).

The Ministry of Education is currently undertaking consultation about the proposed changes and new enrolment schemes. You can have your say by:

  • Completing the survey below
  • Emailing auckland.enrolmentschemes@education.govt.nz if you have further questions or comments.

Ministry will consider all feedback and liaise with the Board before making a final decision. We expect the School community to be updated about progress made about mid-Term 3 The new schemes and changes will come into effect for the beginning of 2022.
