Matapu School Board of Trustees

Out of Zone Enrolment 2023

Enrolment at Matapu School is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office.


The board has determined that there are likely to be up to two places available for out-of- zone students in Term 4 of this year. These vacancies are at new entrant level. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.


The board has also determined that there are likely to be up to 17 places available for out-of- zone students in Term 1 of next year. 15 of these vacancies are at new entrant level and two at year 7. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.


Next year there will be four enrolment periods. The first enrolment period runs from 31st January to 6th April.

For students seeking enrolment within the first enrolment period, the deadline for out-of-zone applications is 3 pm 26th August 2022.


Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the next year should notify the school by the 30th September 2022 to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.


Applications can be made by visiting the school office and applying in writing.


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 the 30th August 2022. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
