Hāwea Flat School has an enrolment scheme in place.  This means that families living within our home zone are automatically able to attend.

The BOT determines how many places are available for out of zone students and this is advertised at the end of every year.  Should the number of applications exceed the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot according to Ministry of Education guidelines.

We have no out of zone places available in 2023 and are very unlikely to have any in 2024 due to growth from within our  home zone.
