Notice of out of zone enrolments for 2020 school year 

Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office. 

The board has determined that up to 10 places at New Entrant level are likely to be available for out-of-zone students next year. Up to 2 places at each of year levels 2 to 6 may also be available. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone. 

Next year there will be four enrolment periods. The first enrolment period runs from 3 February 2020 to 9 April 2020For students seeking enrolment within the first enrolment period, the deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is 25 October 2019. 

In terms of our enrolment policy the following priorities for acceptance are used: 

 1. siblings of current students

 2. siblings of former students

 3. children of former students

 4. children of board employees or board members

 5. all other applicants

Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the next year should notify the school by 25 October 2019 to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year. 

Applications for out of zone enrolments may be requested by email from or requested from the school office. 

If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot for out-of-zone places is required, it will be held on 1 November 2019. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
