HomeEnrolment Information Enrolment



Preference Positions / Special Character Positions:

To qualify for a preference position, parents need to be in regular attendance at a Bible believing church and have a letter from the pastor or an elder to prove this. This process is managed by the school, on behalf of the Proprietor, the Southcity Educational Charitable Trust.


Non-Preference Positions / Non-Special Character Positions:

Under our Integration Agreement with the Ministry of Education, Southcity Christian School may take up to 10% of our roll as non-preference positions.


Southcity Christian School may only admit non-preference students if there is capacity to do so, once all preference students have been admitted, and only up to the 10% quota.


At present we have very limited spaces for non-preference enrolment. We are managing our roll to provide space for preference students as we approach our Maximum roll. Our next non-preference place is not likely until 2022.

At the end of September each year, the list is removed and people apply to be reinstated on the wait list for the following year.
