With our roll spread evenly across our four-mini-schools structure, we believe we are well placed to offer the optimal balance of academic, sporting and cultural opportunities for all our students, linked to excellent pastoral care. Check out this video to see what we have on offer at GEIS.
At GEIS we accept In-Zone and Out-of-Zone enrolments. Application packs for enrolment in 2022 will be available to download from our website and will also be sent to Year 6 students at our contributing primary schools around mid-year.
Please contact the school office, 09 817 0032, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any queries regarding enrolment at GEIS.
In addition to the enrolment form, we also require:
- A copy of the student’s NZ birth certificate or NZ passport
- If a student is not a NZ citizen, we require a copy of the student’s visa and parent’s work permit
- A recent account showing proof of address e.g. power, rates or water bill (In Zone only)
- If the student is applying under Priority 4 (child of a former student) then we require proof of the parent’s attendance at GEIS such as an old school report or photo.
The law requires that GEIS gives priority to enrolling students who live in our home zone.
Out of Zone
Out of zone places, where available, are offered according to the following priorities:
Priority 1: Special Programmes approved by the Secretary of Education (this does not apply to our school)
Priority 2: Siblings of current students
Priority 3: Siblings of former students
Priority 4: Children of former students
Priority 5: Children of Board employees
Priority 6: All other applicants
Where the number of students exceeds the places available, a ballot will be held from the group with the lowest priority according to the rules set down by the Secretary of Education. The closing date for applications is Wednesday 7th September. We also request that all In Zone applications are also received by this date, as the number of In Zone enrolments will determine how many out of zone spaces we have available. If required, a ballot for out of zone spaces, will be held on Wednesday 14th September .
Letters notifying out of zone applicants of the outcome of the ballot will be emailed out to families a few days later.
