Fernlea Primary School 2014 Enrolments
After receiving applications for next year at the closing date of 30 August 2013, the school was in a position to determine the number of out-of-zone places for 2014.
Out-of-zone positions for 2014 were only able to be offered to Priority 2 status applications. (siblings of current students) Fernlea had no Priority 1 applications as it does not operate a special programme as determined by the school zoning regulations.
Accordingly the only students who can be accepted for enrolment during 2014 are those students who live in the school zone, or who are siblings of current students.
The school regrets the situation where out-of-zone students, including those with special needs, who wish to enrol at Fernlea have to be turned away but we have to follow the rules under the Education Act. The Ministry of Education has advised that the school is not entitled to any further classroom accommodation while there are empty rooms at other local schools.
