Karangahake School has seen great growth in the past few years and as such the School has been working with the Ministry of Education to manage its roll to prevent overcrowding by establishing an enrolment scheme starting in 2023.

It is important to know that if your children are currently enrolled at Karangahake School and you live outside the zone, your current enrolment will not be affected by the establishment of the Enrolment Scheme or Zone.

There are two zones, please see the maps below

Year 1-6 Enrolment Scheme Zone

Year 7-8 Enrolment Scheme Zone

Living in the School Zone

Living out of the School Zone

Throughout the year the BOT will determine the number of places which are likely to be available for the enrolment of students for the following year and the number of ballots that will be held.


1.    The BOT will determine each school term the number of students living out of the school zone that may enrol at the school.  If a ballot is to be held (spaces are available);

2.    The Board of Trustees must advertise in the area and on the school website, stating:

Beginning of Week 7 of each term - 18th March, 10th June, 2nd September, 

25th November 2024

End of Week 8 of each term for students accepted to begin the following term -

29th March, 21st June, 13th September, 6th December 2024.

Enrolment Information

It is strongly advised that parents/caregivers who wish to enrol their child/ren at Karangahake School make an appointment with the principal well in advance.  We are happy to meet with you and your child to discuss our learning programmes, the implication the enrolment scheme may have on your family (if out of zone) and show you around the school.
