Enrolling at our School



Welcome to our Enrolments Page​​​

All students who reside within the local catchment area and are eligible for enrolment in the educational program offered by the school have a right to enrol at the school. The Principal will hold places for students who relocate to within the catchment boundary throughout the school year.

Enrolment of students from outside the local catchment area will be managed to ensure that the total current and forecast enrolments do not exceed the school’s current built capacity and where applicable will ensure there is an even spread of students across year levels or class groupings.

The school's Enrolment Management Plan (EMP) does not replace other departmental policy; for example Safe, Supportive and Disciplined School Environment, nor does it override subsequent determinations regarding built school capacity. 

2024 Enrolments​
