For the 2020 school year, the Burnside High School zone has been extended beyond what it was in 2019.
This comes as part of a seven-year project by local principals and boards of trustees to manage enrolments across the city. Seven schools – Burnside High, Hillmorton High, Mairehau High, Papanui High, Riccarton High School, Linwood College, and Haeata Community Campus will amend or implement their enrolment zones.
The four single-sex state high schools – Christchurch Girls’, Christchurch Boys’, Shirley Boys’, and Avonside Girls’ – will have “dual-layer” enrolment schemes where their zones overlap with that of a nearby co-educational school.
Those four schools’ zones will not be revised because three were changed recently, and Christchurch Boys’ zone was accepted as is. Hornby High and Cashmere High reviewed their zones last year and will not be consulted on either.
