THE NEWLANDS COLLEGE ENROLMENT SCHEME HAS BEEN FORMALLY APPROVED BY THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION AND THE NEWLANDS COLLEGE BOARD OF TRUSTEES.

1.2 The Home Zone of Newlands College is defined as follows:

1.2a) The suburbs of Grenada Village, Hunters Hill, Paparangi, Newlands, Woodridge and Bellevue:

  • Bounded to the west and south by State Highway One motorway.
  • Bounded to the north of Grenada Village, on a line extending from State Highway One motorway to State Highway Two motorway.
  • Bounded to the east by State Highway Two motorway.

Proof of residence within the Newlands College home zone will be required.

1.3 Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. This will enable the Board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.


2. OUT OF ZONE ENROLMENTS

2.1 Each year the Board of Trustees will determine the number of places, if any, which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The Board of Trustees will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received. For applications in 2021, the date is 27 July 2020.

2.2 Applications for enrolment, as covered by section 11F of the Education Act 1989 will be processed in the following order of priority:

  • First Priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school. Newlands College does not have any special programmes.
  • Second Priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school.
  • Third Priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a former student of the school.
  • Fourth Priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
  • Fifth Priority must be given to an applicant who is either a child of an employee of the Board of Trustees of the school or a child of a member of the Board of Trustees of the school.
  •  Sixth Priority must be given to all other applicants.

2.3 If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth 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 school.

2.4 Applicants seeking second or third priority status will be required to give proof of a sibling relationship, preferably by means of the appropriate birth certificates.
