Year 7 2019 Application from Primary Schools

At the commencement of Term 2 each year, the Department of Education (DET) provides all primary schools (State, Catholic and Independent) with relevant information and “Year 6 to Year 7 Transition Forms: Application for Year 7 Placement” forms.  Primary schools are required to make this material available to parents of Grade 6 students.  An application for enrolment must be made on this form.  Once completed, it should be returned to your primary school, where it will be verified and forwarded to your preferred secondary school.

Residential address is the address at which the student permanently resides with parents or legal guardians.  Documentary evidence to support claims of a residential address will be required for enrolment on neighbourhood grounds.

It is the role of the Transition Coordinator at a child’s primary school to assist parents with the application process for enrolment at a government secondary school.
