The BOT invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their children at Whakarongo School for next year.
Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office. Out of zone students can apply for the available spaces by completing the appropriate form available from the Whakarongo School Office.
The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone places for 2023 is in September. If you have queries about enrolments for 2023 and your child is out of our zone, please contact the Whakarongo School Office for more detailed information.
Applications from out of zone students will be processed in the following order of priority:
First priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school (not applicable to WS):
Second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school:
Third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school:
Fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school:
Fifth priority must 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 must be given to all other applicants
If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
