All students who live within the home zone described below and shown on the attached map are entitled to enrole at the Kirwee Model School. To avoid doubt, ‘both sides’ of the boundary roads are deemed to be within the home zone.

  • South along the Thompsons Road to the Old West Coast Road,

Each term applications for enrolments from in-zone students are sought. This enables the Board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

First Priority: as Kirwee Model School does not run a special programme this priority is not applicable

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 whose parent/s attended the school.

Fifth Priority: will be given to applicants who are children of board employees and board members.

Sixth Priority: will be given to all other applicants

If there are more applicants in any of the 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.

If there are places remaining after all children from priority groups have been accepted for enrolment, all further enrolments will be processed in order of the date pre-enrolled was received.
