Out of Zone Enrolments for 2020

Enrolment at Ramarama School is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office or on the school website.

Ramarama School will have a limited number of out of zone places available for 2020 across the school including in our intermediate (Year 7/8) area.

The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.

Applicants are accepted in this order:

  1. first priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school

  2. second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school

  3. third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school

  4. fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school

  5. fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school

  6. sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.

If the board receives fewer applications than there are places available all applicants will be enrolled.

What if there are more applicants than places?

The school must hold a ballot (draw) to fill the places available, and create a waiting list for applicants who are not successful in the ballot.

Within 3 school days of the ballot happening, the school must post letters informing applicants of the outcome of the ballot.

Successful applicants then have 14 days to confirm they accept or reject the offer of a place. If they don't respond within that period, the place will be offered to the first person on the waiting list established by the ballot.

The Secretary of Education's instructions to schools are that siblings at the same year level should be kept together for the purpose of the ballot, so that if one sibling's name is drawn, the other is automatically successful also.

Some primary schools with enrolment zones will hold more than one ballot each year. This is for 5-year-olds who are starting school.
