We invite new families to visit and experience our school by joining a group tour, to gain an insight into our school culture, teaching and learning, and special interest programs.

Our school will prioritise enrolments for students living within our 'school zone', a defined geographic boundary surrounding our school.

To determine your zoned school,  please click here for the school finder tool.

If you live outside the zone, you can nominate to attend our school, but there may be limited places available as all local applicants must be accommodated first.

We also offer special interest programs in Music, Volleyball, and ‘Think Bright’, which are available to both students in zone, and outside the zone, by application only.
