Here is your link to our online newsletter for this week - the last one from this term!


In this issue: World Car Free Day; a new mural on our Tech Block walls; e-sewing; carpentry and design for bug hotels; a delicious recipe for gluten free nacho chips and lots of sporting success!

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

The board has determined that up to 5 places for New Entrants and up to 8 places for Year 7-8 students are likely to be available for out-of-zone students next year. 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 three enrolment periods. The first enrolment period runs from Tuesday 2 February to Friday 16 April 2021.

For students seeking enrolment within the first enrolment period, the deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is Friday 25 September 2020.

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 Friday 25 September 2020 to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.

Applications are made online at https://enrolments.linc-ed.com/apply/NZ/2223

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 Monday 12 October 2020. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.

Details relating to the next enrolment period will be published in 2021.
