Years 8 -12 Enrolment

Enrolment placement panel

The Placement Panel will meet to consider and make recommendations on the potential enrolment of all non-local enrolment applications. For complex enrolment applications, which may involve contact with other agencies, the Principal, chair of the WH&S committee and the School Counsellor will meet to consider any information related to a possible WH&S risk associated with the enrolment. Where necessary, the Principal will seek further advice from Educational Services, the District Guidance Officer (DGO) and any other agencies involved with the student seeking enrolment.

Applications for enrolment into Years 8 – 12, and Year 7 after the commencement of the school year

The Placement Panel consists of the Principal, the Deputy Principal responsible for the relevant year group, the relevant Year Adviser and where necessary, the chairperson of the WH&S committee.

Required documentation

  1. Proof of address in the name of parent/carer from at least two (2) different sources. These could include a rates notice, rental agreement, electricity bill or a gas bill.

  5. Where a parent/carer claims that the student lives with a guardian (other than a parent) in area, we require a Statutory Declaration indicating who is the legal guardian.

Note: A risk assessment and information form will be sent to the previous school for review before the enrolment is finalised.

Local enrolment applications

Families must live in the Department of Education (DoE) local boundaries to be considered ‘local students’. The boundary for the local intake area is illustrated in the map provided at the end of this document.

An enrolment interview is required with the Principal or Deputy Principal to discuss the school’s values, educational philosophy and other expectations, the student’s learning needs and history, extra-curricula programs and school organisation.

Once a student has been accepted, all forms will need to be returned to the school, a school uniform purchased and a portion of the school contributions and subject contributions paid. A date for the commencement of the enrolment will be advised once the proof of clearance from the previous school is provided.

Out-of-Area enrolment applications

Students residing outside of the local in-take area may be considered for enrolment depending on current student numbers and available space based on the enrolment ceiling. The school’s enrolment Placement Panel will meet to consider applications from students residing out of the local in-take area.
