Out of Zone Enrolment

The Board of Trustees have conducted a review of the enrolment scheme of Oratia School in order to bring our procedures into line with the current guidelines issued by the Ministry of Education.

Our Board of Trustees will decide before September each year whether or not there are spaces available for out of zone enrolments. If there are spaces available this will be published to the public and applications will be received. There will be a ballot drawn for the available spaces following the priority order as established by the secretary of education. In preparation for the ballot, applications will be sorted into the following five priority groupings specified in Section 11F(1):

· applicants accepted for a special programme

· siblings of current students

· siblings of former students

· children of former students

· children of board employees or board members

· all other applicants
