Christchurch South Karamata Intermediate School has an enrolment scheme and zone. The Ministry of Education have recently revised the school’s enrolment scheme. This has resulted in changes to the scheme which come into effect in a staged way over two years.

For students enrolling for 2023 – Stage 1 of the revised zone.
For students enrolling for 2024 – Stage 2 of the revised zone.

Out of zone enrolments welcome. A school zone does not restrict students living outside the zone from enrolling.

Out of Zone applicants will receive confirmation that their application has been received within 7 days (during term time).
