I WANT THAT SCHOOL
SOME OF THE TOP-NOTCH PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE IN SUCH DEMAND THEY WON’T ACCOMMODATE PUPILS THAT DON’T FALL INTO THEIR CATCHMENT AREA. THESE TIPS MAY GET YOU IN THE DOOR:
MOVE INTO THE AREA Children whose parents live in the school’s feeder zone get preference for admission to schools (including parents who live at their place of work, such as domestic workers).
MOVE YOUR OFFICE Children whose parents work in a feeder zone are given second preference for school admission.
PUT THEM ON A WAITING LIST This may be done at birth. You can register your child at any public school and, if there are vacancies, your application will be considered, even if you don’t live in the feeder area.
