The ‘Home Zone’ is as follows:
Incorporates properties on both sides of Scroggs Hill Road, commencing at the junction of Scroggs Hill Road and Creamery Road.
Moves to the east along Scroggs Hill Road and Saddle Hill Road to Coal Stage Road, encompassing properties on both sides of the road and down Coal Stage Road to the overbridge, across the motorway and State Highway One connecting with Chain Hills Road.
It encompasses the properties on both sides of Chain Hills Road and on passing the intersection of Flower Street it stops at the end of the gravel formed road.
The ‘Home Zone’ retraces its route and descends down Flower Street until it reaches Main South Road and encompasses the properties on both sides of Main South Road (and Flower Street), until it reaches Abbotsford Creek.
It then moves along the Creek bed, under the motorway, taking in the properties on the western side only until it reaches Jeffcoates Road.
From there, where there is an overbridge which is excluded from the zone, it follows Jeffcoates Road up to the intersection with Old Brighton Road, moves to the west again along Old Brighton Road until it reaches Finnie Road and then along to Creamery Road.
It then follows Creamery Road along a near straight line up Scroggs hill Road.
Please note, the school exercises discretion on all enrolments from Waldronville (from the junctions of Jeffcoates Road to the south and Blackhead Road to the north with Brighton Road).
A plan is available from the school to help clarify this description.
Within the Home Zone, enrolment is optional to Fairfield School and entry to the school is guaranteed. To applicants outside the zone the enrolment scheme sets an order of priority if space is limited.
Priority is given as follows:
1. Applicants who have siblings at the school
For the purposes of this section, child A is the sibling of child B if—
a) both children share a common parent;
b) or a parent of child A is married to, or in a civil union with, a parent of child B; or
c) a parent of child A was married to, or in a civil union with, a parent of child B at the time when child B’s parent died; or
d) a parent of child A is the de facto partner of a parent of child B; or
e) both children live in the same household and, in recognition of family obligations, are treated by the adults of that household as if they were siblings; or
f) the Secretary, by written notice to the school, advises that child A is to be treated as the sibling of child B.
2. Applicants who are siblings of former children
3. Applicants who are children of board employees
4. All other applicants
If there are more applicants in the priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a community newspaper.
