At the meeting you will also be given some general information, eg how to buy your uniform, and what Our Learning at Haeata looks like.

Following the enrolment meeting, your child’s information is entered into our student management system (called LincED).

Out of Zone Enrolments

Each year, the Haeata Community Campus Board of Trustees will determine the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the enrolment zone, for enrolment in the following year (23 September 2020).

If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot is required, will be held on 27 October 2020. Whānau will be informed of the outcome of the ballot on 30 October 2020.

Applications from out of zone students will be processed in the following order of priority:
(1) students accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school (i.e. mainstream learning support);
(2) siblings of current students;
(3) siblings of former students;
(4) child of a former student;
(5) children of board employees or a child of a board member;
(6) all other students.

The order of priority is set nationally by the Ministry of Education and cannot be altered by the school.

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.

Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling/parent relationship.
