Out of Zone
Selective Ballot Enrolments
Each year the Board 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 automatic entry in zone (home) area. The Board will publish this information by notice in a community newspaper circulating in the area served by the College. The notice will indicate the method of application and specify a date by which applications must be received.
APPLICATIONS FOR ENROLMENT WILL BE PROCESSED IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER OF PRIORITY:
First Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students
Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students
Third Priority will be given to applicants who are children of a former student of the school
Fourth Priority will be given to applicants who are children of a Board employee
Fifth Priority will be given to all other applicants
If there are more applicants in the 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 College.
Applicants seeking first, second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
If these exceed the number of places available, as determined by the Board, students will be selected by ballot.
