The process for year 8 enrolment does not occur until the student is in year 7. Government Primary schools will issue transition enrolment packs to all year 7 students around the end of Term 1. The application forms are to be returned directly to the State Coordinator at the Education Department. The due date for these forms is approximately at the end of May. High schools are notified in mid August of the students who have been allocated to their school, and acceptance packs will be issued.
If a student has nominated a high school and has not been successful, there is an appeal process which is detailed in the enrolment pack. The appeal process is managed by the Central Office and parents are directly notified.
