Enrolment Scheme

Effective from (Term 1 2021)

The guidelines for development and operation of enrolment schemes are issued under section 11G (3) of the Education Act 1989 for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.

Home Zone

All students who live within the home zone described below and/or shown on the attached map shall be entitled to enrol at the school.

Starting at the intersection of Northcote Road and Akoranga Drive, travel southeast along Akoranga Drive (odd addresses included and even addresses 24 and above only included) to Kitewao Street. Travel east along Kitewao Street (both sides included; Tahinga Street included; Raupapa Street included) to the Northern Motorway (SH 1). Travel southeast along the Northern Motorway (SH 1) to the back of Exmouth Road. Travel northwest along Exmouth Road (even addresses 114 and below only included; Mcbreen Avenue excluded) to Raleigh Road. Travel northwest along Raleigh Road (excluded) to Ocean View Road. Travel northeast along Ocean View Road (even addresses 120 and below only included; Martin Crescent, Potter Avenue included; Liston Street, Lenihan Street excluded) to the intersection of Lake Road (even addresses 110 and above only included and odd addresses 105 and above only included) and Northcote Road. Travel northeast along Northcote Road (excluded) back to the starting point.

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.  This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Special Programmes

This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a Special programme approved by the Secretary.

Out of Zone Enrolments

Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

First Priority       This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary

Second Priority    will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.

Third Priority       will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.

Fourth Priority     will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

Fifth Priority         will be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.

Sixth Priority        will be given to all other applicants.

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group must be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.

Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship. (This sentence is not compulsory. It may be omitted or alternatively a more specific statement may be used in its place)
