Out of zone enrolments closed

Wednesday 13 September


Ballot for out of zone enrolments

There are a minimum of 80 places available for out of zone enrolments for 2018
The priority order for out of zone enrolments, as described in the school enrolment scheme, will be:

No further out of zone applications will be accepted for 2018 

Manurewa High School’s roll growth is exceeding its capacity and The Ministry of Education has provided projections for 2018 and beyond based on contributing schools in our school zone.  As the school operates an enrolment scheme we have been advised by the Ministry to manage our roll within the existing capacity by enrolling fewer out of zone students.  The Board of Trustees approved 80 out of zone places for 2018.

As advertised, the deadline for out of zone applications was Wednesday 6 September, therefore from Thursday 07 September, we are no longer accepting any out of zone enrolment applications.  Once the out of zone ballot has taken place on Wednesday 13 September at 10:30am, all remaining out of zone applications that were received by the closing date will remain on our waiting list.  No further out of zone applications will be accepted for 2018 and we encourage families to enrol their child at their local in zone High School.
