Additional Entitlement to Enrol:
This provision has been approved under Section 75 1 (a) of the Education and Training Act 2020.

is amended, -
(i) the student lives outside the amended home zone; and
(ii) the student has a sibling who is enrolled at the school at the time that the amendment is
(iii) the sibling, at the time that the amendment is implemented, lives inside the home zone as it was

(iv) the student, at the time of enrolment, lives inside the home zone as it was before the amendment;
If applying for enrollment under this part of the Enrolment Scheme, the sibling's name and evidence of a sibling relationship may be required by the school.
Sectiion 75 of the Education and Training Act 2020 sets out the definition of a "sibling" for these purposes.
The school will maintain a list of students enrolled at the time of the implementation of the enrolment scheme change by the Board in order to enable determination of eligibility to enrol under this provision.

definition. It would not apply to:
1. Children who move into the withdrawal area after the implementation of the enrolment scheme
boundary amendment; or
2. Children of families
/ whānau who move out of the old zone after the implementation of
enrolment scheme boundary amendment.
