Enrolment Zones

The Secretary for Education has approved the need for Tauranga Girls’ College Board of
Trustees to operate an enrolment scheme under S11 Education Act 1989 in order to prevent
overcrowding.
The legislation requires the Board of Trustees to create a geographic zone and families who
live within that zone are guaranteed enrolment. Proof of residency will be requested.

The Geographic Zone For Tauranga Girls’ College

Students will be offered enrolment if their usual place of residence is on the Tauranga Girls' College side of the following road boundaries:

Out of Zone Applicants

Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone.  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. 

As per the enrolment scheme legislation, applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

First Priority       will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.

Second Priority  will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.

Third priority       will be given to applicants who are children of former students of the school.

Fourth priority     will be given to applicants who are either children of board employees or children of board members.

Fifth priority        will be given to all other out of zone applicants.

If there are more applicants in the first, second, third, fourth, fifth 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 first or second priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
