We have a question regarding school enrollment:
Our 12 year old is in year 7 at Melba. For work and commute reasons, we want to relocate. We are planning to rent an apartment in the Telopea Park School area in February since we like that school. We were under the impression that living in a Preferred Enrollment Area (PEA) area guaranteed admission to the public school serving that area. However, we just read on the DET’s website that this applies provided there is space in that particular school. Does anyone know if there is a waiting list for Telopea Park High School?
How long would we have to wait (after starting to live there) before we can get the kid into Telopea High?
We are looking to get a place close to the school so that the kid can walk to home after school. Sad that there is no After Care once they cross Primary School!
Thanks in advance!
