Out of Zone Applications


Thank you for your expression of interest in enrolling your child at Kaipaki School. 

We are very proud of who we are, our rural values and the education opportunities we offer our students. 

Due to the ongoing success of Kaipaki School, enrolment continues to be  governed by an enrolment scheme. 

This year there are two enrolment periods, with the first enrolment period from 18th  October 2021 to 14th April 2022.

The board has determined that up to 12 places for Year 0/1 students are likely to be available for out-of-zone students in the first enrolment period. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.

For students seeking enrolment within the first enrolment period, the deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is Tuesday 28th September 2021. 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, it will be held on Wednesday 29th September 2021. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.

Details of the second enrolment period are:

Monday 2nd May 2022 to Friday 30th September 2022

Deadline for receipt of applications: Monday 4th April 2022

Date of ballot: Thursday 7th April 2022


The board invites your application for an out-of-zone placement. If you would like to express interest in enrolling at Kaipaki please complete our online enrolment form.

Kaipaki School looks forwards to the possibility of starting a partnership with you and your child. 

Please feel free to contact us for more information or with any questions. 

Yours sincerely
