Enrolments 2022
Since 1 January 2022, Oruaiti School has had an Enrolment Scheme operating. The intent of this scheme is to manage the number of children attending the school.  Without such a scheme, the school receives too many children for the physical facilities that we have. The Scheme gives the right for any family, living within the home zone approved by the Ministry of Education, to have their children attend the school. For families outside this area, a ballot system is used when there is space available, to prioritise who may attend.  
Home Zone
All students who live within the home zone described below (and shown on the maps) shall be eligible to enrol at the school.

Out-of-Zone Place Allocation Procedures
The allocation of available places for out-of-zone applicants is determined by the following nationally legislated priorities:

  • a) First Priority must be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in a special programme(s) run by the school and approved by the Secretary of Education. (This priority is not applicable at this school because Oruaiti school does not run a special programme approved by the Ministry of Education).

  • f) Sixth Priority must be given to all other applicants. If the number of out-of-zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot supervised by a Justice of the Peace, a Practicing Lawyer or a Police Officer in accordance under Section 11G (1) of the Education Act 1989.
