A parent or legal guardian applying to enrol a child in a government school completes an Application for Admission (enrolment) form.
Complete one form for each child and attach proof of your usual place of residence. An example of this is a utilities account (electricity, water or telephone) showing your name and usual place of residence.
Parents/guardians must ensure that their child's birth certificate, immunisation records, school reports from the previous school, and any Family Court orders or parenting plans registered with the Family Court, are provided at the time of enrolment.
Submitting an Application for Admission does not mean that the school has accepted the enrolment. The Principal takes into consideration the existing and projected effects of the application on classroom accommodation space and whether an appropriate educational program can be provided for your child at the school. The school Principal will notify you if your application is accepted.

French is available for students with the interest and aptitude for the study of a language other than English. Accepting a place in the program requires a three-year minimum commitment (for Years 7, 8 and 9). As French is an elective subject, students will study fewer other elective subjects in the Arts and Technology learning areas. An ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) form for students seeking to study French is included in the enrolment package and a selection process is applied for placement in the class. Students’ EOIs will be reviewed based on their school reports, NAPLAN results and school-based literacy assessments.
We offer a beginner band (classical music) program from Year 7. Placement in the program is subject to the results of the Department of Education’s music aptitude test, confirmation of a three-year minimum commitment to the program (for Years 7, 8 and 9), and participation in choir and ensemble before and/or after school each week. As Music is an elective subject, students will study fewer other elective subjects in the Arts and Technology learning areas.
Contributions are set according to the Department of Education policy, with the maximum amount not exceeding $235 for students in Years 7-10.

Details will be provided to you prior to your child’s start date. Charges and Contributions for all years should be settled by the end of February of the new school year, or as soon as possible during Term 1.
