Enrolment ** Cohort Entry Update **

International & Domestic Students

Koromatua School has not applied for international student status and as such may only enrol those who fall into the "domestic students" category. However, the term "domestic students" does include students from selected countries (where there are mutual exchange agreements) or those who have particular visas. Domestic students are entitled to a free education.

The flowchart below gives the Ministry of Education's guidelines as to who is domestic and who is international. If you do not qualify as a domestic student the nearest international school is Frankton Primary School.
