Adopted by the Morrinsville School Board of Trustees
The development and operation of enrolment schemes is undertaken under authority granted under Schedule 20 of the Education and Training Act 2020, which describes the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.
All students who live within the home zone described below shall be eligible to enrol at Morrinsville School.
The zone begins at the Horrell Rd- Haumia Rd intersection, and includes all of Horrell Rd but not Haumia, Allen, Murray, Brown, Cussen or McAlpine Roads.
Extending south from Horrell Rd the boundary crosses Thames St (State Highway 26) to include all Roache and Gibbon Rd addresses and then extends south west to 415 Kereone Rd (addresses of 454 Kereone Rd and Maungatapu Rd are not in zone).
From 415 Kereone Rd the boundary extends southwest to cross Kiwitahi Railway Rd at 289 Kiwitahi Railway Rd (addresses 327 Kiwitahi Railway Rd and above are not included in zone).
Extending west from 289 Kiwitahi Railway Rd the zone crosses Morrinsville-Walton Rd at 510 Morrinsville-Walton Rd (only addresses 510 Morrinsville-Walton Rd and below are included in zone, Rukumoana Rd is in zone, Tahuroa Rd is not in zone).
From 510 Morrinsville-Walton Rd the zone extends west and then north (including all of Scott Rd) to the Dingle Rd – Kuranui Rd intersection. Addresses on Dingle Rd, and Kuranui Rd addresses west of Dingle Rd are not in zone.
From the Dingle Rd- Kuranui Rd intersection the zone extends northwest to cross State Highway 26 west of 2469 State Highway 26 (addresses 2423 State Highway 26 and below are not in-zone).
From 2469 State Highway 26 the zone extends north and west to a point west of Sunridge Park Rd (Sunridge Park Rd, Oakridge Place, and Broad Church Rd are not in zone) and then south to a point immediately east of 60 Snell St (Sain Crescent, Andrew Hilton Close, Wisely Place and Gummer Place are not in zone).
From number 60 Snell St (included) the zone extends west along Snell St including only odd numbered addresses as far as the Snell St – Studholme St intersection and then south down Studholme St to the intersection of Studholme St and Coronation Rd (including only odd numbered Studholme St addresses between Snell St and Coronation Rd).
The boundary travels east down Coronation Rd including only even numbered Coronation Rd addresses to the intersection of Coronation Rd, Seales Rd, Fairway Drive and Golf Course Rd. (Fairway Drive and Golf Course Rd addresses are not in zone).
From the Coronation Rd, Seales Rd, Fairway Drive and Golf Course Rd intersection the zone boundary follows the Piako River north (excluding Golf Course Rd) to west of the Horrell Rd – Haumia Rd intersection, where the zone began.
Note: Both sides of all streets and roads included in the above description are included unless otherwise stated.
Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.
Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. This will enable the Board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.
Out of Zone Enrolments
Each year the Board will determine the number of places which 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
First Priority – This priority is not applicable because Morrinsville School does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for 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 any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the Board of Morrinsville School or a child of a member of the Board of Morrinsville School.
Sixth Priority will be given to all other applicants.
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary, under Schedule 20, Clause 3 (1) of the Education and Training Act 2020. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by public notice in a medium appropriate to the area served by the school.
