School zones

Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones.

 

Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

 

The Department provides guidance through the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.

 

You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.  

 

School Tours - by appointment only

Small Group Tours run every Tuesday morning for approximately 30-45 minutes, from 9:30am with either the Principal or Assistant Principal.  

 

Alternatively you may prefer to book an individual, 1:1 tour with the Principal or Assistant Principal at a mutually agreed time. Individual Tours usually take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour and you will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like.

 

All Tours include an overview of the school, our curriculum and student wellbeing programs and a walk around the buildings and grounds where you will observe Junior, Middle and Senior Students actively learning in our brand-new classrooms, Specialist learning areas, Gymnasium, Playtgrounds as well as the Foundation centre, Library and Sensory space. 

 

If there is a particular aspect of our school you are especially interested in learning more about, please notify the staff member when booking your tour so the Principal can focus on providing information that is tailored to your area of interest or your child's specific needs. 

 

Following your tour, you will be provided with an information pack to take home, including enrolment forms.

 

Please contact Kate Atkins, our Parent Liaison, on 9772 4139, to reserve your spot.

Enrolling your child

Enrolments are now being taken for Foundation 2023.  To be eligible for Foundation enrolment in a Victorian State Primary School, a child must turn 5 on or before the 30th April of the year they commence school.

 

We can also consider offering placement to students transferring from another school in Levels 1 to 6 during the current school year or at the start of Term 1 2023.  Please contact the office to discuss your family's situation and whether we have capacity to offer placement, depending on current student numbers in that year level.
