Public Notice – Enrolment for 2024

Consequent upon the passing of the Education Amendment Act 2000, the following matter is drawn to the attention of parents of prospective students.

Enrolment Scheme

In order to avoid overcrowding, the Board of Paraparaumu College has adopted an enrolment scheme which has been approved by the Ministry of Education.

The Board invites parents who wish to enrol their children at Paraparaumu College for next year.  Applications are governed by our enrolment scheme.  Applications are to be made on our official enrolment forms which will be available in June, 2023.

Paraparaumu College has a home zone specified in our enrolment scheme.  The following is a description of the home zone:

Geographical Home Zone

In the south, the scheme runs along the intersection of Marine Parade and Toru Road, along Toru Road to the airport and following the airport boundary north along Dakota Road – Magrath Avenue to Kāpiti Road, then along both sides of Kāpiti Road to the old State Highway, up the old State Highway to the intersection of Ruahine Street (including Nikau Valley).

The scheme then runs north up the old State Highway to Te Kowhai Road and Gary Road.  The scheme then runs back along to the coast to the intersection of Marine Parade and Toru Road.

All residential addresses on included sides of boundary roads and all no exits roads off included sides of boundary roads are included in the scheme unless otherwise stated.

Application Dates

For planning purposes we request applications from the parents of students who live in their home zone for entry into Year 9 in 2024 to be in the hands of our school by Monday 24 July 2023.  In zone applications can be accepted at any time.

In the case of applications for enrolment for students who live outside the home zone, applications MUST be received no later than Monday 24 July 2023. Any application received after Monday 24 July 2023 will not be able to be considered.

Applications for out of zone applicants for places in Year 10 – 13 in 2024, can also be received up to Monday 16 October 2023 but acceptance of these enrolments will be subject to such factors as the optimum total roll of the school of the number of applicants from within our home zone.  Any applications received after Monday 16 October 2023 will not be able to be considered.
