please read the guidelines below.

Student Enrolment Guidelines

At the February, 2015 School Council Meeting, the issue of placing a restriction on Student Enrolments was discussed in great detail. The school had earlier received permission from the Department of Education to grant the Enrolment Restriction, due to the rapid increase in enrolments.

 

Proof of residence is required.

** The lease must be through a Registered Real Estate Agent. Private lease arrangements will not be accepted

School Council have implemented Student Enrolment Guidelines effective immediately.

In the first instance, Prep Enrolments will be capped at 125 (or 6 Classes).

Other Year level enrolments will also be granted according to criteria below.

  • All students who reside in the Designated Neighbourhood Boundary

Unfortunately, we are not currently able to offer placement to out of zone students unless part of our Prep intake.

The School will finalise enrolments at the end of July each calendar year. Parents will receive written confirmation shortly after. If places are still available, they will be offered based on residential proximity to the school.

Enrolments will only be accepted for the next Calendar Year.
