We would be delighted for you to consider enrolling your child at Hokowhitu School. If you are considering taking this step, you are welcome to contact the office to make an appointment with our principal, so you can see the school and discuss any questions you have.
When you are ready to enrol your child, please collect an enrolment pack from the office, fill in the forms, and return them as soon as possible. Please also bring with you your child’s birth certificate and immunisation form (completed by your family doctor).
The Hokowhitu School Board is now inviting applications from parents who wish to enrol their child at Hokowhitu School for Terms 1 and 2 of 2023.
Enrolment at Hokowhitu School is governed by a Ministry of Education approved enrolment scheme. Under this scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone broadly bordered by Victoria Avenue, Main Street, Ruahine Street, Franklin Avenue, Pahiatua Street, Te Awe Awe Avenue, and most Summerhill addresses accessed via Pacific Drive. (For a precise description, please refer to the map and description below).
For Terms 1 & 2, 2023 the Hokowhitu School Board estimates there are likely to be 20 spaces available for out of zone children turning 5 years. There will be 5 spaces each available for out of zone children that will be Year 3 as well as Year 4 in 2023.
The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone placements is 9 September 2022. A ballot will be held on 13 September 2022 (if needed) . Parents will be informed of the outcome by the 16 September 2022.
Our Hokowhitu School Board is committed to supporting families of children who have siblings currently attending our school.
Applications for out of zone enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:
If there are more applicants in any of these priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot.
Applicants may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
