Villa Maria College Enrolment Scheme Amendment

Closed 14 Jun 2021

Opened 17 May 2021


The Ministry of Education has been working with Villa Maria College to make some changes to their enrolment scheme. This is to continue 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.

Recently redrawn parish boundaries and Marian College moving to a new site in the future mean a change is required to both enrolment schemes.

Note that all students who are already enrolled at Villa Maria College before the enrolment scheme changes commence are entitled to stay at Villa Maria College.

It’s important that we hear and understand community perspectives before we establish these changes to the enrolment scheme at Villa Maria College – especially the design of the enrolment categories and priorities.  Please have a look at the proposed information available before you participate in the consultation process.

This consultation process is about enrolment schemes, which determines the entitlement to enrol.

Submissions are official information

Submissions you make become official information. The content of submissions can be asked for under the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA). Under the OIA, we must make information available unless there is good reason for withholding it.

Tell us if you have any objections to the release of any information used in your submission, particularly which part(s) you believe should be withheld, along with the reason. Reasons might include that it is commercially sensitive or it is personal information. We will take into consideration any objections when responding to OIA requests. However, any decision the Ministry of Education makes to withhold information can be reviewed by the Ombudsman, who may tell us to release it.

What happens next

After consultation is finished, the Ministry of Education will collate all feedback and process this information to ensure it meets the requirements of the Education and Training Act 2020. If the Ministry is satisfied that the enrolment schemes meets these requirements, the enrolment scheme will be finalised and provided to the Board. The school’s board must implement the finalised enrolment scheme as soon as practicable.
