Out-of-zone 2020 Applications

2021 Ballot Out-of-zone applications are NOW CLOSED!

Maungawhau Primary School Board of Trustees has determined that they will be accepting Out-of-Zone enrolment applications for the Year 0 & Year 1 year groups starting in 2021 only.

The exact number of places available will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone. Students who live within the home zone should also apply by this date to assist the school to plan appropriately. 

If you reside out-of-zone and you wish for your child to be considered for enrolment in the out-of-zone ballot, you will need to complete a Pre- Enrolment Form. Please return the application form with all the additional documentation to the school no later than the application closing date shown below. 

Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Parents will be emailed results of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held. Please print your email address clearly on the form. 

Please complete the following and return it to the school office. If we do not receive all the requested documentation, we cannot include you in the ballot. These are the things you will need to complete your Out of Zone Enrolment:
