Enrolments for 2023 will open from Monday 15 August

Enrolling at Wairau is an easy process.  It is very important to enrol your child well in advance of the school year, to help with successful class placements and school organisation. All enrolment applications (both In Zone and Out of Zone) should be received by Monday 26 September.  

Enrolment Interviews

Enrolment interviews will be held with the Principal (Yolanda East) and Deputy Principal (Judy Carter) from Monday 15  August – Friday 19 August.  Please refer to the booking form below for information on how to book an interview.

School Zone

Wairau Intermediate has a school school zone. Although in zone enrolments are given first priority, we are now in a position to accept out of zone enrolment applications for 2023.  For all enrolments  we require proof of address (i.e. a power bill or bank statement) and a sighted copy of a passport or birth certificate.  Scanned copies of these documents can be accepted at this time and should be emailed with the enrolment form to our school secretary: margaretl@wairau.school.nz

The map of our school zone can be seen by clicking on the link below.

  • student’s residence permit or returning residence visa
  • parent’s work permit and student’s permit/visa
  • student’s New Zealand citizenship certificate

2023 ENROLMENTS – Open Days/Evening

Our open days will be held on Wednesday 10 August and Thursday 11 August between the hours of 9.00am and 3.00pm.  Tours of the school will be given by the Principal and Deputy Principal.  No appointment will be necessary.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact us by email:
