Starting on 10 May, 2021, consultation around a new/amended enrolment scheme for Lincoln High School starts. This is due to a risk of overcrowding. This information comes from the MOE:
The changes to the home zone are required due to rapid residential development in Rolleston and a need to clarify the northern boundary of the Lincoln High School home zone as the current map makes it appear as if some of the newer development areas in Rolleston are in-zone for Lincoln High School.
The need for an amendment on the Rolleston boundary also provides an opportunity to consider two other proposed changes to the zone. Since the enrolment scheme was last amended, the Southern Motorway extension has been completed. The Southern Motorway now forms a proposed better northern boundary for the Lincoln High School zone. The area north of the motorway is also in zone for Hornby High School at Years 9-13.
There is also need for clarification of the south-eastern boundary of the Lincoln High School zone. While few families reside in the southern bays, the Lincoln High School boundary is unclear and should include the entirety of the catchment of Little River School. Little River School does not have an enrolment scheme, and the proposed zone amendment includes all addresses west of the Duvauchelle School zone.
This is also an opportunity to make small changes to better align with property boundaries and reduce the complexity of the map. This will support better function of the address and school zone search feature on the enrolment scheme website, particularly for users on mobile devices.
You can read about this at https://consultation.education.govt.nz/education/lincoln-high-school-enrolment-scheme-amendment and complete the survey to place your feedback.
All students who are already enrolled at Lincoln High School before the enrolment amendment commences are entitled to remain enrolled. Siblings of current students will have priority access to any out-of-zone places offered by the school.
Please read all the information on the above website when placing your feedback.
Questions about the process can be directed to Canterbury.EnrolmentSchemes@education.govt.nz. All feedback about the proposed enrolment scheme is to be given through the survey. Consultation closes on 8 June 2021.
