Riverview School Enrolments

Enrolment Scheme:

Since Tuesday, October 25 2011, Riverview School has had an Enrolment Scheme operating. The intent of this scheme is to manage the number of children attending the school. Experience has shown that, without such a scheme, the school receives too many children for the physical facilities that we have.  The Scheme gives the right for any family, living within the zone approved by the Ministry of Education, to have their children attend the school.  For families outside this area, a ballot system is used when there is space available, to prioritise who may attend.  For full details on the Scheme and the Zoned area, please go to these links:

International Students:

Riverview School does not enrol children who are categorised as “International Students". Some state schools have a licence (Code of Compliance) to accept international, fee-paying, students.  This licence requires a great deal of work to ensure the wellbeing of students. Riverview School does not have this Code of Compliance and thus cannot accept international students.

If you wish to know whether your child is entitled to attend our school (i.e. is not an international student), please check online at www.minedu.govt.nz
