Do not have an enrolment zoning scheme for NZ Catholic schools, particularly Baradene College of the Sacred Heart, Auckland
This petition has closed
To the Minister of Education,
Zoning of Baradene (or plans to do so for any other Catholic school) goes against the Catholic character of the school which accepts any enrolments. Catholic schools should not be made to implement a zoning enrolment scheme because they wish to expand their school roll.
There is a strong emphasis within Baradene that diversity brings strength; this includes cultures and where students live. Students learn much from their peers. Zoning takes away the mana of Baradene.
