Enrolment at Frasertown School

Enquiries regarding enrolments should be directed to the Principal, Mrs Tangi Geary


Frasertown Enrolment Scheme

In order to avoid overcrowding, or the likelihood of overcrowding, the board of Frasertown School has adopted an enrolment scheme which has been approved by the Ministry of Education.

Parents should be aware that:


Each year we determine how many places we have available for students who reside outside our home zone.  If there are more prospective students than available places then we proceed to a ballot.


Siblings of current and past students have high priority in the scheme after those who reside in the home zone.


The enrolment of out of zone enrolments is governed by the Education Act 1989

This enrolment scheme also applies to students enrolling in years 1 to 6.

Parents should contact Mrs Geary who will advise them of the availability of ‘out of zone' placements.

Home Zone

All students are encouraged to apply for enrolment regardless of their place of permanent residence.  All students who live within the home zone described below shall be entitled to enrol at Frasertown School.The home zone boundaries are defined as:

  •  Freyburg Rd, Carroll St, and Airport Rd up to the railway, all of Kaimoana and Macdonald Streets and Railway Rd.

  •  Awamate rd up to and including Huramua Road East and Huramua Road West.

  •  East 1335 Hereheretau Rd (TEZ line), all of Mangapoike Rd

Out of Zone Enrolments

Each year the Board will determine the number of places that are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone.  The Board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.  The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received. Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority as stated in the Education Amendment Act 2000:

First Priority:Will be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in an approved special programme (this priority category is not applied at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary of Education.).

Second Priority:Will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.

Third Priority:Will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.

Fourth Priority:Will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

Fifth Priority:Will be given to applicants who are children of Board employees or Board members.

Sixth Priority:Will be given to all other applicants.

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 will be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.

All out of zone enrolment applications must be received by the school by the specified date.
