Chapel Downs Primary School enrols students from the Flat Bush/Ormiston area as well as out of zone students.

Chapel Downs Primary School is governed by an enrolment scheme, which consists of a home zone and procedures for enrolling out-of-zone students.

Zoned students

Students living in the home zone are entitled to enrol.  This would include parents looking for an Ormiston primary school and an east tamaki school.  Enrolment forms for all students are available from the school office or can be downloaded.  Parents of students who live within the home zone should apply, to assist the school to plan appropriately for the following year.


Out of zone students

The Board has determined that 20 places are likely to be available for out of zone students next year. Applications from out of zone students will be processed in priority order and details of this are contained in the enrolment scheme, which is available for inspection at the school office. If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot.

  • A completed enrolment pack. This includes an enrolment form, health record form and dental service enrolment form .
