School Questions

The Ministry of Education requires the College to ensure that all students meet the requirements of the Waimea College enrolment scheme. Details of the scheme and description of the Waimea College Zone are available from the College Reception or on our website.

The College may require supporting evidence relating to the student’s address, and/or siblings identified.

Please identify the option below that applies to you.

Section A - Student lives INSIDE the zone

  1. The “home address” which I have provided under “Student Details” will be the “usual place of residence” of the named student when the school is open for instruction. If the “home address” is not yet known (or is different to the usual place of residence) refer to Section B.
  2. This address is inside the zone described in the Waimea College enrolment scheme.
  3. The student will be living at that address (when the school is open for instruction) with a person who is the parent or legal guardian of the named student.  If the student is boarding in the zone, go to Section B.

Section B - Student lives INSIDE the zone but circumstances are different to those listed above

In this situation, a parent or legal guardian must make an appointment for an interview with the Principal or a designated staff member.

Section C - Student lives OUTSIDE the zone

Please read below to determine which of the following priorities (one to six) applies to you.  If you require more information on this, please contact the College Reception.   You can also arrange for an interview if you are likely to be ‘in-zone’ by the date of first attendance.

1Applicant for enrolment has Special Education (ORS) funding.
2Applicants who are siblings of current students.
3Applicants who are siblings of former students.
