Proposed Enrolment Scheme

Message for school community from Ministry of Education

The Ministry has just opened consultation about a proposed new enrolment scheme for Oamaru Intermediate School.  An enrolment scheme is a tool for a school board to manage its roll through creating a home zone and fair and transparent processes for enrolling any children living outside the area. 

We want to hear and understand community views before making any decisions about where the enrolment scheme home zone area will be.  This will include consultation with the Oamaru Intermediate School Board, other schools in the area, parents and whānau from school communities, and people who live in the area.

Students already enrolled at Oamaru Intermediate School will not be affected by the enrolment scheme.  It is intended that an enrolment scheme will be in place for 2022 enrolments.

All information can be found at Oamaru Intermediate School enrolment scheme - Education Conversation - Citizen Space   

This includes –

  • Information about what is proposed
  • A consultation feedback survey
  • Information about enrolment schemes and background demographic information about why a scheme is needed

There will also be some paper copies in the Oamaru Intermediate School Office.

If you have questions you can email these to [email protected] 

It’s important that you understand what is proposed and how this will work, so we encourage all families to check out the consultation website.  Consultation will run until the end of 9 July.
