Proposed Enrolment Scheme

The Matipo Primary School Board is in the process of implementing an enrolment scheme as directed by the Ministry of Education Under section 11H(1) of the Education Act 1989.

All students who live within the home zone described below, and as shown on the map, shall be entitled to enrol at the school.

The proposed zone is:

Starting at the northern most point of Te Atatu Road (831-741, 760-568A included) travel south Wharf Road (1-37,2-34 Rewarewa Road and Totara Road excluded). Continue south east along the centre of Te Atatu Road to Taikata Road, Peachgrove Road and Yeovil Road excluded). Follow the creek north back to starting point.

All residential addresses on included sides of boundary roads and no exit roads off included sides of boundary roads are included in the zone unless otherwise stated.

Copies of this zone along with a map are available in the school office and on our website.

Members of the community are invited to make comment regarding this proposed enrolment scheme in writing to:

The Board of Trustees,

Matipo Primary School,

 63b Matipo Road

Te Atatu Peninsula 0610

 

closing 1 month from the date of this notice.

Board of Trustees Newsletter March 2011

Warm greetings to you all.  The Board of Trustees is now into the second year of our term.  The Board consists of:

Walter Payne – Chair
Amanda Magnus – Deputy Chair
Kate Eldridge – Parent Representative
Faga Siaki – Parent Representative
Vanna Blucher – Parent Representative
Jill Jessop – Staff Representative
Wayne Bainbridge – Principal

The school continues to operate on a sound financial basis and this year’s financial audit has been done and from the oral feedback, there are no issues.

Several maintenance and building projects will be undertaken this year.

  • Rooms 15 & 16 were painted
  • The green courts are being resurfaced with a new product over the April holidays
  • The upper driveway was resealed.
  • A whole school electrical upgrade will start soon.
  • An extra classroom went to tender this week.

National Standards reporting went ‘live’ last year and for the third year in a row, 92% of children right across the school, are reading at or above the National Standard.  We are not as strong in writing, however and this year the Board is committing $10,000 in professional development for the staff in writing.

Later in the year the school will have the scheduled visit from the Education Review Office (ERO), who will review all aspects of school governance, management and especially, achievement of pupils.  Both the Board and Principal look forward to an external appraisal of our school and will welcome the feedback.

Best wishes for a very successful year.
