Dear Students, Parents, and Caregivers


I am writing to inform you about enrolments for Pakuranga College, 2023.


If you are in the Pakuranga College zone you have an automatic right of entry. If you are unsure visit our website www.pakuranga.school.nz or phone 534 7159 to check the zone.


If you are out-of-zone you will need to go into a ballot for the limited number of places, we have available. At this stage we would expect to have approximately 100 places for out-of-zone students. The closing date for out-of-zone applicants is Wednesday 7 September 2022. The out-of-zone ballot will be held on Wednesday 14 September 2022 and letters to applicants will be emailed/posted by Friday 16 September 2022.


Visits to Local Intermediates

I will be visiting Farm Cove Intermediate on Thursday, 23 June at 9.15am talk to any students who wish to enrol and to distribute enrolment packs. Year 8 students will be able to ask questions and meet some of our current Pakuranga College students.


Information Evenings

Two meetings have been organised to provide alternatives for busy parents as follows:


  • Tuesday 21 June 2022 at 7:00pm in the School Library or
  • Wednesday 22 June 2022 at 7:00pm in the School Library


These meetings will provide an opportunity for parents to meet the Principal and senior staff and find out more about the values and philosophies of the college, including NCEA and e-learning. These meetings will last approximately one hour.



BYOD – Bring Your Own Device

The college has a BYOD policy and all Year 9 students will be expected to bring their own digital device to school every day (i-Pad, tablet, Chromebook etc.). You will find detailed information about BYOD in the enrolment pack.


Open Morning – Saturday 6 August 2022 from 9:00am – 12 Noon

An open morning has been organised for Saturday 6 August from 9:00am – 12 Noon. Parents and students are warmly invited to visit the college to view facilities and to meet staff and students.


Conclusion

In October we will be running Orientation Evenings for students and their parents. We will also keep in regular contact through to the start of the 2023 school year to ensure a smooth transition into your new school. Key dates will be published in the local papers and are also detailed below.
