Out of Zone Enrolments - 2024 Ballot Information

Te Matauru Primary will be offering a limited number of out of zone spaces in specific year levels for enrolments in 2024.

Limited spaces are available for students who will be New Entrants, Year 1, Year 5 or Year 6 in 2024.

We will be holding a Ballot Open Day for prospective families on Thursday, 7th September from 9.15am to 10.15am. If you would like to attend this presentation from the Principal and tour the school, please email office@tematauru.school.nz to register.

If you would like to apply for the out of zone ballot, please enter an online enrolment application at the link on the top of the page. 

The deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is 20 September 2023.

Parents of students who live within the school zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the next year should notify the school by 20 September 2023 to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.

If the number of out-of-zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot for out-of-zone places is required, it will be held on 22 September 2023. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.

If you require any further information, please contact the school office via email office@tematauru.school.nz or phone 928-3191.

Enrolment Zone 

All students who live within the home zone described below* shall be entitled to enrol at the school.
You can check your address to see what zone you are in on the Education Counts website here.

From the intersection of South Belt and Townsend Road;

Addresses on both sides of boundary roads are considered in-zone unless specified otherwise.

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.  This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.
