Enrolment Schemes Kelston Intermediates and Secondaries

Closes 9 Dec 2021

Opened 11 Nov 2021

Overview

The Ministry of Education is currently working with the Boards of Kelston Intermediate, Bruce McLaren Intermediate, Kelston Boys' High School and Kelston Girls' College to implement new enrolment schemes. The enrolment schemes for Kelston Intermediate, Boys' High School and Girls' College are proposed to cover the same area. Existing zones for adjacent schools are not being changes as part of this process.

Enrolment schemes are needed to help manage enrolments across schools.  This allows Boards to manage the risk of overcrowding, provides a fair and transparent process for enrolment and ensures we are making the best use of schooling facilities across the area.

Enrolment schemes do mean that choice is limited in this area – all families will have entitlement to attend a school that is reasonably convenient to them, but won’t have the same entitlement to enrol at other state schools.  (Note - students already enrolled at a school before a home zone is implemented or changed are entitled to stay at their current school).

It’s important that we hear and understand community perspectives before we implement amendments or new zones – especially the practical implication and whether the amended boundaries accurately reflect the area.  Please have a look at the maps and overview information available below before you participate in the consultation process. 

This consultation process is about enrolment schemes, which determines the entitlement to enrol.  It’s important to note that a student’s eligibility to enrol may be different to their eligibility for School Transport assistance.  Further information about eligibility to school transport can be found here https://www.education.govt.nz/school/property-and-transport/transport/sta-eligibility/
