Out Of Zone Enrolments 2024
Out of Zone Enrolments
Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office. The board has determined that 14 places are likely to be available for the out of zone students throughout 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. Next year there will be four enrolment periods that align with cohort entry.
The first enrolment period runs from 30th January 2024 to 11th March 2024 (Intake 1 Term 1 and Intake 2 Term 1)
For students seeking enrolment within the first enrolment period, the deadline for receipt of applicants for out of zone places is the 13th November 2023. There are 4 Year 1 places, 1 year 6, 2 Year 7 and 2 year 8 places in English Medium classes for Term 1, 2024 enrolment.
Because the board operates an enrolment scheme, it is required to fill any vacant out of zone places by ballot in cases where there are more applications for enrolment than there are places available.
Applications close 9am, 13 November, 2023. If a ballot is required, it will be held at 10am, 15th November, 2023. Please contact the school to arrange registration: Ph 07 889 7780 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
