Update: re-enrolment of Christchurch school students 23/3/11


Update to information on re-enrolment of Christchurch school students, 23 March 2011

Statistics New Zealand has updated its brief overview of Ministry of Education re-enrolment data for primary, intermediate, and secondary school students. This was produced in response to the 22 February 2011 Christchurch earthquake. The data will be updated weekly until population movement settles or this data source is no longer required.

How many have re-enrolled and how many have returned

There were 8,928 students who were enrolled in the Christchurch city, Selwyn district, and Waimakariri district before the earthquake on 22 February 2011 who re-enrolled in other schools around the country. This is 11.7 percent of the students enrolled in these areas in July 2010. However as at 23 March, 1,644 students have returned to their original school, leaving 7,287 students still away (9.6 percent of the students enrolled in these areas in July 2010).

Re-enrolments from Christchurch city, Selwyn district, and Waimakariri district were greatest in the week following the earthquake. The number of students who are re-enrolling daily at other locations around New Zealand has slowed, with 762 students re-enrolling in the week to 23 March, compared with 1,194 in the week to 16 March, 2,778 in the week to 9 March, and 4,191 in the week to 2 March. The total number of students still away has dropped from a peak of 7,581 on 17 March.
