(a)

the student was living in the school’s home zone when the student enrolled at the school; or

(b)

the student was entitled to a particular priority in the ballot for places (for example, by falsely claiming the applicant is the sibling (as defined in clause 2(3)) of an existing student).

The address given in a student’s pre-enrolment form as the address where the student lives is taken to be the address at which the student is living on enrolment, unless the board is notified otherwise.

A board that annuls the enrolment of a student must immediately—

(a)

advise a parent of the student, in writing, of the date of annulment and the date on which it takes effect; and
