St Helena Secondary College (SHSC) has an ‘Enrolment Ceiling’ and a ‘Restricted Neighbourhood Zone’(RNZ). This means we are limited in the number of students we can accommodate and that those within the zone must be prioritised.
Applications for enrolment into all year levels are processed against the criteria in the following order:
First: Inside Restricted Neighbourhood Zone (RNZ)
Proof of permanent residence inside the RNZ is required.
Second: Sibling Rights
Applicants who live with a sibling who attends St Helena Secondary College at the same time,
if positions are available.
Third: Nearest Residential Address Outside the RNZ
Based on straight-line distance from the applicant’s driveway to the College driveway on Wallowa Rd.
Fourth: Specific Curriculum Grounds
Applicants from outside the RNZ can complete a Specific Curriculum Grounds form (in addition to the Proof of Residence form) to demonstrate the significant educational benefit the applicant would gain at SHSC compared to the school at which they have right of entry
PROOF OF RESIDENCE
