Priority Enrolment Criteria
If there are more eligible applicants than available places, then all applicants will be selected for
enrolment according to the following priorities (an eligible applicant is a student who meets our
Designated Character Criteria).
Priority must be accorded to applicants for whom the school is reasonably convenient (Reasonable
Convenience for this Enrolment Scheme is defined as being the old Christchurch City boundary prior to
amalgamation with Banks Peninsula District Council).
(a) First priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school.
(b) Second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a former student of the school.
(c) Third priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
(d) Fourth priority must 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.
(e) Fifth priority must be given to all other applicants.
If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available places in any one priority group, then
applicants will be balloted, and allocation of places will be in ballot order. Applicants on the waiting list
will be offered any places that become available before the next ballot. The waiting list will remain in
place until the next advertised enrolment period.
