Enquiry to enrol
- Make and enrolment enquiry via phone on 8254 6522
- Student Services staff will review your enquiry and contact you regarding your application and complete an enquiry form over the phone
- Where applicable, a school leader will then make contact with you to arrange an enrolment interview
- Please ensure you provide the following when attending the interview;
Proof of name and date of birth
You must use one of these documents to prove your child’s full legal name and date of birth:
- an official birth certificate or extract
- a passport or other travel document such as a visa, citizenship certificate or ImmiCard
- Centrelink or other official government documents with the child’s name and birth date
If you cannot provide one of these documents, contact the school or preschool.
Proof of residence
If you own your home, you need to show both of these:
- contract of sale for the property or a recent council rates notice
- recent gas or electricity bill for the property
If you rent a home, you need to show both of these:
- rental agreement and a bond receipt lodged with Consumer and Business Services showing the current place of residence. The rental agreement should cover at least the first 12 months at the school
- recent gas or electricity bill for that property
You must give your child’s primary permanent home address, not a commercial, postal or mailing one.
When a school is under enrolment pressure (or has a capacity management plan), there are additional considerations for local families who are applying to enrol:
- For students applying to start school for the next school year, the rental agreement must be current and also cover the entire next school year
- The rental agreement must be for the entire property. The renting of a room or rooms is not considered a primary place of residence
- If your child is living with a relative or friend, the school will ask for supporting documents such as a parenting order from the family court confirming that the relative or friend is the child’s legal guardian
- The school or preschool might ask you for other supporting documents to verify your child’s address, such as a driver’s licence
All schools and preschools will ask for residential documentation when they make an offer to enrol, or when the family is changing an address at the school.
If you cannot provide the requested documents, the school or preschool will decide about the legitimacy of the application. This might include asking you for other documents, to come to an interview, or to sign a statutory declaration.
