  2. A child who lives in the local-intake area of the school, who does not have a sibling enrolled at the school for that year and who lives closest to the Kindergarten.
  3. A child who does not live in the local-intake area of the school, who has a sibling enrolled at the school for that year and who lives closest to the Kindergarten.
