As the roll of Craighead Diocesan School has reached the maximum number allowed in the Deed of Integration, the Ministry of Education requires the Board of Trustees to develop and implement an enrolment scheme for applications made for entry to the School at Year 7 and Year 9 in 2009 and in subsequent years.
Priority for Enrolment
First Priority will be given to preference applicants who have accepted places in the Boarding House.
Second Priority will be given to preference applicants for whom Craighead Diocesan School is the nearest non-Roman Catholic State Integrated girls’ school within the boundaries of the Rakaia River to the North, from Lake Coleridge to Omarama in the West and to the Waitaki River in the South.
If the number of preference students from this area exceeds the number of places available at the School, the following priorities will be adopted:-
Third Priority will be given to the preference students who are sisters of current students, but are not covered by a previous priority,
Fourth Priority will be given to students who are children of former students of the school living outside the school zone of the boundaries of the Rakia River to the North, from Lake Colleridge to Omarama in the West and to the Waitaki River in the South.
Fifth Priority will be given to preference applicants who are daughters of current members of staff, (i.e. the Boards’ employees), and current Board members, but are not covered by a previous priority.
Sixth Priority will be given to preference applicants who are sisters of former students of the School, but are not covered by a previous priority.
Seventh Priority will be given in chronological waiting list order to preference applicants whose names have been on the Waiting List for a period of time no less that three (3) years as at 1 January in the year in which enrolment is sought.
Eighth Priority will be given to all other preference applicants
Ninth Priority will be given to non-preference students. Non-preference students will be enrolled only if enrolment places remain after all preference applicants have been enrolled and the Board judges that enrolment of the non-preference students will not compromise its ability to offer places to preference students who may apply for enrolment at a later date. Priority among non-preference students will be given to students who meet one or more of the criteria above.
At any point in time, where there are more applicants in any one priority grouping than places available, places will be allocated by considering each successive priority in order..
If the total number of applications is greater than the number of places available, unsuccessful applicants will have their names recorded on a waiting list, within the relevant priority category.
The Board will maintain a Waiting List for each year. As applications are received, they will be dated and entered on the list for the year of intended enrolment.
