Enrolments for 2024

The Board of Trustees invites applications from parents/caregivers who wish to enrol their sons and daughters at Rotokauri School for 2024.

Enrolment at Rotokauri School is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office. An application form must be completed for all student wishing to enrol at Rotokauri School.  In and out-of-zone application forms are available from the school office.  The deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is Friday 13th October 2023.  Parents of students who live within the home zone should also apply by this date to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year. The Board has determined that up to 25 places are likely to be available for out-of-zone students next year in Year 1.  The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school's home zone.  If the number of out-of-zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot.  If a ballot is required it will be held on Friday, 27th October 2023.  Parents will be informed of the outcome within three school days of the ballot being held.  Any questions regarding the pre-enrolment and ballot applications may be directed to the school office (
