Amendment to the Proposed Scheme
The draft Enrolment Scheme for Selwyn College has been amended to remove the proposed shared area between Upland Road and Orakei Road. A new map and description of the amended zone is currently being drawn up by the Ministry of Education and will be available on our website shortly for further consultation.
A reminder that the deadline for submissions to our Board is Monday 4th August. The instructions for making a submission are also on our website.
The Scheme in Operation
We wish to assure Selwyn families and whanau that students already attending Selwyn College will not be affected by this new Enrolment Scheme, which comes into effect for the start of 2015. This means that current students who live ‘out of zone’ will be able to continue attending Selwyn as usual.
Under the new Enrolment Scheme, students will be automatically enrolled if they live within the home zone.
The enrolment of ‘out-of-zone’ students however, is governed by the provisions of the Education Act and applications are subject to the balloting of available places according to stated priorities. We encourage all students who wish to attend Selwyn College in 2015 to apply before the ballot is held on September 10th. This includes those who reside within the zone, as it will help us determine out of zone numbers.
