Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. The School Finder shows our local enrolment area. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol 

Contact us when you’re ready to enrol your child in our school. You may need to attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.

For more information, visit primary school enrolment.

The application form must be completed in English. However, a translated application to enrol may help you to fill out the form in English.

Out-of-area enrolments

Criteria for Selection of Non-Local Enrolments

Parents may apply for non-local enrolment at Glendenning PS, based on the following criteria. The criteria are presented in categories, with the first three criteria being of greatest significance. Please note that a selection panel consisting of the Deputy Principal, a teaching staff member and a school community member will assess all applications and create a list of applicants who may be offered places. Non-local enrolment placement will only be offered if there are places available once all local applicants have been enrolled (and the ‘buffer’ for further/anticipated local enrolments maintained) and a vacancy exists.

Temporary visas and international students

The Process Timeline

  • Parents may apply for non-local enrolment of students at any time throughout the year.
  • The panel for considering non-local enrolments will meet fortnightly during Terms 3 and 4 of each year and as necessary during Terms 1 and 2.
  • Parents will receive notification of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt of it at school.
  • In the event of an application for non-local enrolment being declined the parents may appeal within 10 school days. Appeals should outline why the applicants believe the stated criteria were not applied equitably. Appeals should be addressed to the Principal. The Principal will advise of the outcome, in writing, within 10 school days. If the matter is not resolved at the school level, the final level of appeal is to the Director, Educational Leadership.

Effective: August 6, 2019
