Non-Local Enrolment Application:
Following the general principles outlined in the DEC Procedures for Secondary School Enrolment Transition from Year 6, 2013 to Year 7, 2014 all children are entitled to seek to be enrolled at the local secondary school that is the designated intake area within which the childs’ home is situated and that the child is eligible to attend. The Education Act 1990 Section 21B states that all children must attend school between the ages of six and the minimum school leaving age. Students seeking to enrol should have an application to enrol in a NSW Government School completed on their behalf. Parents/Carers only have priority in their local school.
