Enrolment Timeline


Tuesday, 2nd June - Enrolments open for 2021

In-zone and out-of-zone forms are the same. They are available online (see above) and from the office.


Thursday, 6th August 6.30pm - Open Night for all prospective 2021 families

This is an opportunity for parents and caregivers to come along and get some information about Waikowhai Intermediate, ask some questions and have a talk with senior leaders about our school. Your children are also welcome to attend.

Thursday, 13th August 9.20am to 11.20am - Open Day for all prospective 2021 families

This day is for parents, caregivers and their children to come to Waikowhai Intermediate and have a walk around with some of our students to see our school on a 'normal' day. Please come any time before 11.20am.

27th - 31st August - Visits from in-zone primary schools to Waikowhai Intermediate


Wednesday 2nd September - Out-of-zone applications close

Please have your applications in before this date to be in the ballot. If you miss the ballot, there may be a second ballot if spaces are still available, but this cannot be guaranteed.  Last year, we were able to accept all enrolments received by this date, and anticipate the same again this year.


Wednesday 9th September - Out-of-zone ballot

 Within three school days after the ballot, families will either be emailed an offer of place which they will have 14 days to accept, or families will be informed of the place they have on the waiting list.


Friday 25th September - In-zone applications to be received

To help with our planning, as well as managing our class sizes, please make sure your applications are in on time.


Friday 27th November 9.00am to 9.55am - Year 6 students visit to meet classes and teachers for 2021

All 2021 Year 7 students meet in the hall for a 9.00am start. This is an important day on our school calendar. All enrolments that are accepted are placed into their 2021 classes on this day so they can meet their classmates and teacher. We find this is very useful to orientate children to Waikowhai Intermediate and take away any anxiety that they may have over the summer break.
