Zones
Zones and the Enrolment Scheme

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 shown on the map) shall be eligible to enrol at the school.

Unless otherwise stated, the boundary is the street centre line. Proof of residence within the enrolment scheme zone may be required.

  • Queens Drive from Gala Street to the Waihopai River
  • Waihopai River from Queens Drive to Gladstone Terrace/Grey Street intersection
  • Grey Street from Gladstone Terrace to Herbert Street
  • Herbert Street from Grey Street to Kelvin Street
  • Kelvin Street from Herbert Street to Gala Street
  • Gala Street from Kelvin Street to Queens Drive.
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 of Trustees 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 enrolments will be processed in the following order of priority:

First Priority is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for Education.

  • Gala Street from Kelvin Street to Queens Drive.
  • Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
  • Third Priority will be give 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 applicants who are children of board employees.
  • Sixth 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 ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary, under Section 11G (1) on 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.
