The Ministry of Education has advised that parents should be warned of the possible consequences of attempting to gain enrolment by knowingly giving a false address or false information or by making an in-zone living arrangement which is intended to be only temporary. Such as; • Renting accommodation in the Home Zone on a short term basis • Arranging temporary board in the Home Zone with a relative or family friend • Using the Home Zone address of a relative or friend as an ‘address of convenience' with no intention to live there on an on-going basis • Using a Home Zone business address as an ‘address of convenience' with no intention to live there on an on-going basis. If the school learns that a child was not living at the Home Zone address given at the time of pre-enrolment, or the school has reasonable grounds to believe that a temporary Home Zone residence has been used for the purpose of gaining enrolment at the school then the Board may review that enrolment. Unless the parents / guardians can provide satisfactory explanation within 10 days, the Board may annul the enrolment. This course of action is provided for under Section 11 (O) and 11 (OA) of the Education Act 1989.
Out of Zone Enrolment The Board of Trustees shall decide how many, if any, places will be available for out of zone students at each year level taking into account existing and projected rolls. It is important to note that schools do not necessarily hold a ballot each year. Information regarding in-zone and out of zone enrolment is also available from the school office. An Out of Zone application form is available from the school office or can be downloaded using the link below. Applications for out of zone enrolments will be processed in the following order of priority: First Priority: This priority category is not applicable as the school does not run a special programme approved by the Ministry of Education. 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 applicants who are children of board employees Fifth Priority will be given to all other applicants. If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with the instructions by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. *Applicants seeking second or third priority status will be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
