Ballot for out-of-zone enrolments for 2021

Kohia Terrace School will be holding a Ballot on Wednesday 21st October 2020 for out-of-zone enrolments.

The Board has determined that places are likely to be available for out-of-zone students in the following year
levels:

Year 0 (Date of birth between the 1st June 2016 and 31st December 2016) 
Year 1 (Date of birth between the 1st June 2015 and 31st May 2016) 
Year 2

We will also be accepting ballot applications for Years 3 and 5, Priority 2 only (see list of priority levels below).

To apply for this ballot, please fill in the 2021 online pre-enrolment form 

Applications close 14 October 2020.

Ballot date for 2021 enrolments is 21 October 2020.  This is done under police supervision. 

If you would like a tour of the school, please phone to make an appointment on (09) 630 4525. We have two time slots available: 23 September 1:45–2:15pm or 24 September 12:00–12:30pm. Spaces are limited.


Children living outside the school zone can make an out-of-zone application, with places for out-of-zone children being allotted by way of a ballot.  The Board of Trustees decide each August how many places will be available (if any).  They take into account exisiting and projected rolls as it is preferred to have two classes at each year level to avoid composite classes e.g. mixed year groups.

Applicants are accepted in this order:

  1. first priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school
  2. second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school
  3. third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school
  4. fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school
  5. fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school
  6. sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.
