Out of Zone applications must be lodged by 7 September to be considered for our out of zone ballot. Interviews with successful out of zone candidates will take place on 18-20 October.

Priority 1: Students enrolling for special programmes (Not applicable to Avondale College)

Priority 2: Siblings of currently enrolled students

Priority 3: Siblings of former students

Priority 4: Children of former students

Priority 5: Children of employees of Avondale College Board of Trustees. 

Priority 6: All other applicants
