Home Zone Enrolments
Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students may be sought by a date which will be published by a notice in a local community newspaper and at local preschools. This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.
Out of Zone Enrolments
Each year the board will determine the number of places, if any, which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. If there are places, the board will publish this information by a notice in a local community newspaper and at local preschools. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.
Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:
First Priority This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for Education.
Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
Fourth Priority will be given to applicants who are children of board employees.

Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by a notice published in a local community newspaper and at local preschools.
