In order to avoid overcrowding the board of Gisborne Intermediate School has adopted an enrolment scheme approved by the Ministry. Under this scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone described below.
From the Wainui Rd Bridge and along the western side of the Waimata River up to and including 299 Riverside Road. Then in a north-westerly direction around the outskirts of Gisborne city including the following roads, including those roads with direct access to Valley Road and Shelley Road. The home zone boundary then travels in a northerly direction to 1813 Waimata Valley Road including Mander Road, Utting Road, Bailie Road, Monck Road and Marshall Road. It then travels overland in a westerly direction including Ngakoroa Road and Newman Road, crossing Matawai Rd (SH2) to McMillan Road. The boundary travels south including Humphreys Road and Lavenham Road up to the intersection with Tangihanga Road, until it reaches Waipaoa River. The home zone boundary then follows the Waipaoa River to the coast. The boundary then travels north along the coast to the Wainui Rd Bridge.
A map can be viewed below.
The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education Act 1989.
