Enrolling at our school

Our school has an enrolment management plan (PDF, 1.10MB) which limits our intake of students.  Please check the Enrolment Management Plan to see if you reside in catchment or are entitled to enrol as in-catchment.  The following website will help determine if your residential address is in our catchment area:  http://www.qgso.qld.gov.au/maps/edmap/
