Thank you for your interest in our kura. Parents and whānau who wish to enrol children at Bethlehem School will need to complete a School Enrolment Form. All students who live within the home zone in the map above and described below shall be entitled to enrol at Bethlehem School.

Parents of students who live within the home zone should enrol their child at Bethlehem School by the beginning of Term 4 in the year prior to starting to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.

Westward along Waihi Road to SH2, along SH2 to Mayfield Lane. Along Mayfield Lane to its conclusion, onward along the western side of Carmichael’s Drain (now Tauranga District Council reserve land) which leads out to the Tauranga Harbour stopping at its intersection with the East Coast main trunk railway.
