In order to avoid the likelihood of overcrowding, the Board of Green Bay Primary School adopted an enrolment scheme which was approved by the Ministry of Education and took effect from Term 4, 2015.
Under this scheme, students who live within the home zone (in-zone) described below (and shown on the attached map) are entitled to enrol at the school.
Starting at the intersection of Takahe Road and Wood Bay Road travel northeast along Takahe Road, east along Avonleigh Road, north along Castleford Street, and west along Godley Road. At the intersection of Godley Road and Titirangi Road, travel north along the center of Titirangi Road (346 – 272 included) to the intersection with Golf Road. Travel east along the centre of Golf Road (even numbers only included) and south along the center of Portage Road (189 and above included) to the coastline. Follow the coastline southeast to the eastern boundary of Wood Bay Reserve. Follow the reserve boundary north then west to the intersection of Wood Bay Road (55, 80 and above included) and Takahe Road, back to the starting point
Proof of address for all in-zone enrolments is required.
When enrolling your child for the first time in an NZ school, you will need to present your child’s birth certificate and immunisation certificate. (These certificates are not necessary for NZ children transferring from a school within NZ).
Please note that it is school policy that all New Entrants should have three class visits before starting school. With the exception of the first week of the school year, all students arriving unexpectedly to enrol will start the next day. This is to give teachers adequate time to organise the best start to your child’s school experience.
Please ring the school to make an appointment to meet with either the Deputy Principal, Associate Principal or the Principal and then enrol at the office. Be prepared to give us at least two emergency contact phone numbers in case of illness or accident.
Families from overseas will require passports and Visas showing entry criteria into New Zealand. Most students from overseas need to apply to the immigration department for a student’s study permit.
