Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Rosehill Intermediate School Enrolment Process


The Rosehill Intermediate School Board of Trustees invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their child/ren at Rosehill Intermediate School for next year.

Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office and online from our website www.rosehillintermediate.school.nz.... Enrolment packs are downloadable from our website now or from our school office from the 12th October 2020.

The deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is 4th November 2020.

Parents of students who live within the home zone should also apply by this date to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.

The Board has determined that 100 places in Year 7 and 5 places in Year 8 are likely to be available for out-of zone students next year. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.

If the number of out-of-zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot is required it will be held on 6th November 2020. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
