Enrolment and Zoning


7 November 2022

The Oratia School Board of Trustees has moved to adopt and accept the Ministry of Education proposal of a minor amendment of Oratia School’s enrolment scheme to include the Selo development on Glengarry Road. This will help share the influx of students from the new development along that portion of road between Oratia School and Prospect School. Additionally, the remainder of the zone has been redrawn to land parcels, but this does not change the zone boundaries besides adding visual clarity.

Priority 1 - In Zone Enrolment

Oratia School herewith declares the zone boundaries outlined below and indicated on the map held for perusal at the Board Office at Oratia School, Shaw Road, Oratia. People living within these boundaries can be enrolled as of right.

Out of Zone Enrolment

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 school zone.

Places are offered to applicants according to their priority group, and then according to their position on the waiting list generated by the ballot. Priority groups are prescribed by legislation and set out in our Enrolment Scheme.
