Papamoa College Zone Change
4 August 2021

Tēnā koutou Papamoa College Community

The Ministry of Education have completed a review of the Mt Maunganui and Papamoa school enrolment schemes and have proposed a change in the boundary for the Papamoa College zone.
 
In short, the current Sandhurst Drive zone boundary will be brought east to Palm Beach Boulevard from 1 January 2022.  
 
This now means that odd-numbered addresses on Palm Beach Boulevard will be included the Papamoa College zone, while even numbered addresses and any addresses west of this road will not.  The entire Papamoa College Enrolment scheme and map can be viewed here.

The Board have accepted the proposed zone amendment but strongly expressed to the Ministry of Education, their disappointment that there will be a number of Papamoa whanau who live between Sandhurst Drive and Palm Beach Boulevard, that will now be prevented from enrolling their child at Papamoa College as an in zone student.  There is however, a provision for younger siblings of current Papamoa College students, to enrol for the next 7 years - until 2028.  
 
The process for out of zone enrolments will continue to exist for those students who live outside of the Papamoa College zone.

Should you have any questions regarding the amended enrolment scheme, feel free to contact the school.   enquiries@papamoacollege.school.nz  

Thank you
