How to Enrol

Follow these simple steps!

Choosing the right school for your child is a very important decision. These are the steps that we recommend you take:

Step 1: Find My School

Bimbadeen Heights Primary School zone is available on which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones.

Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. Your zoned school is the first school at the top of a list of 5 nearby schools to your residential address, the other 4 are listed for distance reasons only. 

The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.

You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.


Step 2: Transition to School Parent Information
