•  The eastern boundary is Denbigh Street, Denbigh Street addresses on both sides of the street are in zone to Denbigh Street’s intersection with East Street. The boundary continues as the centre line of East Street from the East Street intersection with Denbigh Street to the East Street intersection with Aorangi Road. The boundary continues along Aorangi Road to the Oroua River.
•  The southern part of the boundary follows the Oroua River along the border of the Feilding Golf Course and continues to the intersection of Kawakawa Road and Awahuri Feilding Road, such that all addresses in Turners Road, Darragh Road and Kawakawa Road are in zone.
•  Continuing clockwise from the intersection of Kawakawa Road and Awahuri Feilding Road towards Feilding, all addresses on Awahuri Feilding Road are in zone. Lees Road addresses are not in zone. Streets to the west of Awahuri Feilding Road, which then becomes West Street are in zone through to the intersection of West Street with North Street (the starting point). Note that Ranfurly Road addresses are in zone, and Sandon Road addresses east of its intersection with Ranfurly Road are in zone.

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students may 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.

OUT OF ZONE ENROLMENTS

Each year the Board 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. If there are places, the Board 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.

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

First Priority    This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary.
Second Priority    will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
Third Priority    will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
Fourth priority    will be given to applicants who are children of former students.
Fifth priority    will be given to applicants who are either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.
Sixth priority    will be given to all other applicants.

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.

Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
