What is the procedure for enrolling my child?
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 place of residence. Three documents are required as evidence and must include a rates notice or rental agreement (where a family is in a rental property), as well as a utilities account (gas, electricity, or water). Other examples of proof of address include; additional utilities account, telephone and bank statement and drivers license.
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.

I am outside of the local intake care?
Submitting an Application for Admission does not mean that the college has accepted the enrolment. In most instances cross-boundary applications are declined to ensure the college has sufficient capacity to accommodate students residing within the local intake area. The college Principal will notify you if your application is accepted.

Do I need to provide my child with a device?
The college has not opted for a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) system at this stage therefore there is no need for your child to have a device. Additionally students do not need to have a mobile phone or other personal electronic device at school. Students will not be permitted to have any of these devices on college grounds and if students are seen with a mobile phone or similar device during the school day they will be confiscated. Students will always be permitted to use a college phone for important matters.
Who do I contact about my child?
While the first point of contact for parents in all schools should be the teacher, in a secondary school your child may have up to ten different teachers during the year. It is important that you get to know your child’s teachers; email and Compass are useful tools to achieve this. In addition to their subject teachers, students may also develop relationships with the Student Wellbeing and Engagement personnel or extracurricular activity coordinators. All of these people will be working to support your child through their secondary school life!
If parents have questions or concerns about a subject or something happening in a class they should initially make contact with the teacher. The Head of Learning Area (HOLA) or a Teacher in Charge of a Learning Area (TIC) may be another contact person in some circumstances. For student wellbeing concerns, please contact your child’s House Leader.
