1. We intend to move into the zone later this year. Can I enrol now?
The enrolment legislation requires that you have a permanent address in zone before you enrol. Once you are living in your new address contact the school office to enrol. You are guaranteed a place at the college if you live in zone.


2. Will the College be accepting out-of-zone applications for levels other than Year 9 next year?
The College has a very large roll and we are not able to offer out-of-zone places at levels other than Year 9.


3. How many out-of-zone places will be available?
The number of out-of-zone places varies, depending on our in-zone intake.  This is determined by ballot, according to the priorities set out in our enrolment scheme. Click on the ‘Important Dates’ tab for the upcoming dates for this process, to help with your planning.
