The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

  • Second priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of current students. 
  • Third priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of former students. 
  • Fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school. 
  • Fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school. 
  • Sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary.
