As a state government school, we follow departmental polices related to Placement, Admission and Enrolment. In line with the Placement Policy, the Regional Director has currently set neighbourhood boundaries for our school. The Education Department has a website that can easily identify the boundary or zone of every state school (primary and secondary) in Victoria. Check your zone here:


We encourage potential new families interested in enrolling to check if your address is aligned to our neighbourhood area before commencing with the enrolment process.
