New Proposed School Zone

Published on: March 29, 2018 | Author: Shirley Boys' High School

Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley Boys’ High School proposed enrolment home zone consultation

The Secretary of Education has directed the Boards of Trustees of both schools to develop a new enrolment home zone under section 11H (1) of the Education Act 1989. This was deemed necessary because of the relocation of the schools to a new co-located campus on part of the former QEII site. 

Both Boards envisage a single enrolment zone covering students of both schools will be preferable given the future co-location of the two schools. When approved by the Ministry of Education, the enrolment home zone will entitle students who live in the home zone to enrol at the schools as of right from 1 January 2019. Students from outside the enrolment home zone will have to apply under the schools’ respective out-of-zone ballot process.

The Boards of both schools are undertaking consultation on their proposed enrolment home zone with students, parents of students, prospective students, people living in the area and affected neighbouring school Boards. Consultation will be by way of public meetings and an online survey.

Interested persons are invited to attend one of the public meetings;

  • Thursday April 5th 7:30PM Shirley Boys’ High School Hall
  • Saturday April 7th 10.00AM Avonside Girls’ High School
  • Tuesday April 10th 7:30PM Marshland School
  • Thursday April 12th 7:30PM South New Brighton School

An Information Pack on the proposed enrolment home zone, including a map of the proposed area can be found at https://goo.gl/HEjFMi

Consultation closes at 5.00pm on April 26th 2018.
