BoT By-Election

A message from the Matipo BOT:

Good Afternoon All,

Last night the BOT met to discuss and finalise the upcoming BOT By-Election for our school. Please note the following points for your information;

Voting day for the By-Election has been set for Friday 19th May 2017

The BOT have voted unanimously to increase the make up of the parent voice on the BOT to six members.

At the last BOT meeting the board chose to look for a Returning Officer from within our school cluster to manage the upcoming By-Election. The BOT voted to accept an independent Returning Officer from another school, who is already trained to do the role, is Police vetted and very experienced as a Returning Officer. The selected Returning Officer has undertaken this role at their current school nine times.

Further information regarding the upcoming By-Election is on its way to you soon.


Should you be interested in becoming a Board of Trustees member or want more information please pop in to the school office or speak to one of the current members of the BOT. We are more than willing to share our experiences with you.

A Message From The Board

A message from the Matipo Board of Trustees:

There has been some interest regarding a role as the Returning Officer for the upcoming By-election for trustees of the Board of Trustees for Matipo School.

Firstly, thank you to those who have emailed the BOT about the role, which clearly shows our school community is humming to support wherever they can.

Some important information for you all…
The “Returning Officer” is appointed by the BOT. It is not an advertised position as some people may believe. At the last BOT meeting it was resolved to ask for a Returning Officer from another school to do the job. This person will already be trained to do the job, has been Police vetted and will also be very experienced.

More info to come about the upcoming By-election soon.

Out of Zone Enrolment Ballot 2017

August 2016

The board invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their sons and daughters at Matipo Primary School for next year. Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office. Please phone or visit the school office for details of enrolment applications.

The board has determined that no places are likely to be available for out of zone students next year (other than Category B: applicants who are the sibling of a current student of the school), instead the results of the ballot will determine the order of applicants on a waitlist. The exact number of vacancies to arise during next year will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.

The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone places is Wednesday 12 th October, 2016.

Parents of students who live within the home zone should also apply by this date to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year. Students who live in the home zone are entitled to enrol at the school.

Applications from out of zone students will be processed in the following order of priority:

a. First priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school.

b. Second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school.

c. Third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school.

d. Fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

e. Fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.

f. Sixth priority must be given to all other applicants

If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot is required, it will be held on Wednesday 19th October 2016. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
