I WANT THAT SCHOOL

Your Baby & Toddler - - The Dossier (Back to 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.
