Sunnyvale School (1519)
After discussion with the Ministry of Education, Sunnyvale Primary School accepted the need to implement an enrolment scheme to manage roll growth. This is effective from Term 1 2021.
Home zone - In Zone
All students who live within the home zone described below (and shown on the attached map) shall be entitled to enrol at the school. Enrolment packs are available here (hyperlink) and through the school office.
Sunnyvale School provides two Special Language Programmes: Nafanua Samoan Bilingual Unit and Ngā Kākano Māori Bilingual Unit.
Eligibility criteria for these units are:
- A desire for proficiency in Te Reo Māori or Samoan
- Siblings of current students in the programme and/or children of employees of the Board working full time in the programme
- Siblings of former students in the programme
- Students that have attended a Kohanga Reo or Samoan pre-school in the Waitakere Henderson Rutherford catchment
Out of zone enrolments
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 circulated 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.
Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:
First priority: must be given to applicants of the Nafanua Samoan Bilingual Unit and Ngā Kākano Māori Bilingual Unit.
Second priority: must be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
Third priority: must be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
Fourth priority: must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
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.
Sixth priority: must be given to all other applicants.
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, or 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 for Education 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 second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
