Enrolment and Zoning


The Ministry of Education is currently reviewing a proposal to change our enrolment zone to include the new Selo development on the corner of West Coast Road and Glengarry Road. The Silo development would become a shared zone with Prospect Primary School. That is the only change to the zone.

We have been asked to post these documents on our website and to inform people of the changes and their right to comment. The Ministry is seeking consultation around these changes and invite our community to have their say.
