2024 OUT OF ZONE ENROLMENTS FOR RUSSELL STREET SCHOOL
Enrolment at Russell Street School is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office or on the school web site. The board has determined that up to 30 places are likely to be available for out-of- zone students next year. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.
Next year there will be four enrolment periods. The first enrolment period is for Term 1, 2024 (29 January – 12 April) and runs from the first day of school in the new year to the last day of Term 1.
For students seeking enrolment within the first enrolment period, the deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is September 14, 2023. Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the next year should notify the school by September 14, 2023 to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year. Pre-enrolments can be made online via the school website.
If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot for out-of-zone places is required, it will be held on September 15, 2023. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
