All schools in the eastern suburbs are under constant enrolment pressure. We currently have over 800 students  enrolled for 2017, with all possible classroom areas occupied. Due to a DECD assessment on the 6th September, 2016 regarding our numbers being capped, we have now reached capacity for 2017 in most year levels.

Once you provide us with the proof of residency information below, we will ask you to complete an enrolment form and will then add your child/ren’s name to our register. If a place is available prior to the commencement of the 2017 school year, we will contact you.
