New Enrolment Legislation

Since 1990 Manurewa Central school has had an enrolment scheme designed to reduce overcrowding at the school.

Recently the Government made changes to the legislation governing enrolment schemes.

These changes alter the priorities for enrolment and the manner in which extra places at the school are to be filled.

These changes apply to all schools with enrolment schemes from the beginning of 2001.
