Each year in May the Board will consider whether there will be a ballot for out of zone places. If a ballot is to take place then applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:
First Priority: will be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in the following special programme run by the school and approved by the Secretary for Education: Montessori programme.
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 any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
Fifth Priority: will 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: will be given to all other applicants.
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth 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.
Applicants seeking second, third or fourth priority will be required to give proof of the relationship under the priority classification.
