Kia ora ma whanau Huirapa o te kura Kotuku Lauriston,
To avoid overcrowding, or the likelihood of overcrowding, the Lauriston School Board has implemented an enrolment scheme that has been developed by the Secretary for Education.
Under this scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone described on the Education Counts Website at: www.educationcounts.govt.nz and searching ‘Lauriston School’. (These details are also included for your information below)
The enrolment of out-of-zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education and Training Act 2020.
Please be advised of the following information in regards to the Lauriston School Enrolment Zone which came into effect on 25 July 2022:
All students who live within the enrolment zone described below shall be eligible to enrol at the school.
Starting from the intersection of Mitcham Road and Dromore Methven Road;
- North West along Dromore Methven Road to Winchmore Lauriston Road

Addresses on both sides of boundary roads are considered in-zone unless specified otherwise.
Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date that will be published by public notice in a medium appropriate to the area served by the school. This will enable the board to assess the number of places that can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.
This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a Special programme approved by the Secretary.
Applications for enrolments will be processed in the following order of priority:
- First priority is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for Education.
- Second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school.
- Third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school.
- Fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is the child of a former student of the school.
- Fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of an employee of the school’s board or a child of a member of the school’s board.
- Sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.
Before the application deadline associated with each pre-enrolment period, a Board must, by public notice in a medium appropriate to the area served by the school:
- confirm the already advertised dates for the receipt of applications and for the holding of the ballot.
- state the likely number of out of zone places that remain available.
If there are more applicants in any priority group 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.
Applicants may be required to give proof of address or sibling relationship.
The guidelines for development and operation of enrolment schemes are issued under Schedule 20, Clause 3 (3) of the Education and Training Act 2020 for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.
