Christ the King School (Burnside) Enrolment Scheme 2022

Closed 26 Aug 2022

Opened 25 Jul 2022


The Ministry of Education has been working with Christ the King School (Burnside) to establish a new enrolment scheme.

This is to assist the Board to manage a situation where there is more demand for enrolments than there are places available within the maximum roll, provide a fair and transparent process for enrolment and to ensure we are making the best use of schooling facilities across the network of local schools.

If there is, or are likely to be, more applicants for enrolment at a State integrated school than there are places available, the Ministry of Education must establish an enrolment scheme for the school. State integrated schools are not required to have a home zone but should accord priority to applicants for whom the school is a reasonably convenient school. 

This proposed enrolment scheme identifies areas of reasonable convenience for Christ the King School (Burnside) in the form of Primary and Secondary Qualifying Parishes. These are based on the previously promulgated parishes of Burnside (proposed Primary Qualifying Parish), St Albans, Bryndwr and Papanui (proposed Secondary Qualifying Parishes) that are now subsets of the larger Catholic Parish of Christchurch North (see maps below). It is proposed that applicants to Christ the King School (Burnside) who reside in a Primary Qualifying Parish will be prioritised above applicants who reside in a Secondary Qualifying Parish and these applicants will be prioritised above applicants who live outside a Qualifying Parish. This is a format that has been consulted upon and agreed with the Catholic Education Office.

The enrolment scheme for Christ the King School (Burnside) is proposed to commence from 01 January 2023.

Note that all students who are already enrolled at Christ the King School (Burnside) before the enrolment scheme commences are entitled to stay at Christ the King School (Burnside).

It’s important that we hear and understand community perspectives before we establish this new enrolment scheme at Christ the King School (Burnside) – especially the design of the enrolment categories and priorities.
