Enrolments

New arrangements since 2014

The ACT Education and Training Directorate has updated the enrolment and transfer arrangements for all ACT public schools.

All new student enrolment applications for 2016 open from 28 April 2015 (day 1 term 2).
If you are enrolling your child to start school in 2016 or if your child is transferring to an ACT public school at any stage you will need to use the same online form. This must be done on the new 2016 enrolment form.

To make this process easier for those wishing to enrol or transfer, please use the online enrolment/transfer form and Parent/carer guide to enrolment/transfer for ACT public schools located on the 'Enrolling in an ACT Public School' section of the Education and Training Directorate website www.det.act.gov.au

If you have difficulty accessing a computer to complete the online enrolment form please come to the school for assistance. A translator can be arranged should you require one. Please make an appointment on (02) 62057566.

To make the process more equitable, there is no longer any need to queue at the school on 28 April to enrol your child. All enrolment requests are stored electronically and sent to the first choice school after 5 June. Decisions regarding offers of enrolment/transfer are made after the closing date. From the 5 June to the 19 June enrolments will be sorted and parents will be notified if they have received a place in their preferred school.

Please note that to be eligible to enrol, you will need to provide your child's birth certificate, immunisation details and proof of residence, ie. utilities bill, mortgage document, lease or tenancy agreement.

Excursions

Students must appreciate that attendance on excursions or camps is not a right but a privilege. Attendance must be earned through appropriate behaviours in school. If a student is going to be excluded from an excursion or camp, staff will consult with the Principal and the parents will be advised.
Students are expected to behave on excursions and during school organised activities in the same manner as behaviour expected at school.
On day excursions students are expected to wear school uniform unless the teacher organising the excursion advises otherwise, or the excursion requires particular types of clothing.
On overnight excursions the school will provide written advice about expected behaviour and consequences for inappropriate behaviour. In cases of persistent non-compliant behaviour prior to unit camps, a school executive may exclude a child from participation.
