Out of Zone Enrolments
Te Parito Kōwhai Russley School has out of zone places available from time-to-time dependent on role numbers. Applications are invited and must be received prior to the stated dates for each of the remaining terms (dates below). An application is no guarantee of a place. Information and enrolment forms are available above or through firstname.lastname@example.org
Each term the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following term for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The board will publish information in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area, indicating how applications are to be made and will specify a day by which all applications much be received.
In line with Ministry practise, a ballot will only be held where surplus places are available for new students. 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 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 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.
