Enrolling your child

Enrolments are now being taken for 2021 and 2022. 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. 

School zones
For information about school zones and the current guidelines set by the Victorian State Government Department of Education, please refer to the following website: https://www.education.vic.gov.au/parents/going-to-school/Pages/zones-restrictions.aspx 

You can enter your residential address at https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au/ to find out whether Chelsea Heights Primary School is your child's Designated Neighbourhood School - noting that some school zones have changed recently.  We welcome enrolment applications from families who reside outside of our designated school zone, however as per current legislation, children living within the zone must be offered placement as a priority.  Applicants who reside outside the CHPS school zone will be placed on a waiting list and will be advised in Term 3 if their enrolment is successful.  We will accept as many 'out of zone' enrolments as we can accommodate, up to our projected intake capacity once all 'in zone' places have been confirmed.

We look forward to welcoming your family to our school community.  We trust that it will be a rewarding and exciting time for you and your child.
