Updated ACT/Canberra Primary School Priority Enrolment Area/Catchment For 2019

This is just an update of ACT/Canberra primary school’s priority enrolment area for 2019. It does not mean the zone was changed from 2018. Last time I have gone over the ACT’s school zone was in 2017.

  • Amaroo Primary School zone only covers Gungahlin and a very small part of Jacka.
  • New Primary school Margaret Hendry School which is a new P to 6 schools which opened in 2019 covers the suburb of Moncrieff, Jacka and Taylor. It also shares the suburb of Casey with Gold Creek Primary School.
  • Amaroo Primary School now no longer have the suburb of Moncrieff as part of its priority enrolment area.
  • Aranda Primary School now Covers the suburb Aranda and shares the suburb of Cook with Macquarie Primary School. The suburb of Bruce is no longer part of Aranda Primary School and now part of priority enrolment area of Maribyrnong Primary School.
  • Bonython Primary School priority enrolment area shrunk to the south and no longer contain any part of the suburb of Gordon. Correspondingly this part is now priority enrolment area of Gordon Primary School.
  • The suburb of Chifley and north of Pearson are no longer shared Priority Enrolment Area between Mawson and Torrens Primary School.
  • The suburb of Ford is no longer part of the Harrison Primary School’s priority enrolment area instead it is part of the Neville Bonner Primary School’s.
  • Minor adjustment of Turner Primary School’s priority enrolment area to the eastern side, these all looked like none residential area, so should not matter in terms of enrolment.

“Priority Enrolment Area” which is what a particular address is zoned for the particular school. When discussed from the perspective of a particular school is often referred to as one of the following terms.

  • School Zone
  • School intake area
  • School catchment

Updated ACT/Canberra High School Priority Enrolment Area/Catchment For 2019

I have updated the ACT/Canberra’s secondary school’s priority intake area, this covers from year 7 to 10 (high school) and the year 11 to 12 (college). The changes are as following, please note the changes are not necessarily what happened in 2019, just between now and last time I reviewed the data.

  • Suburb Florey is now exclusive priority enrolment area for Belconnen High School, it is no longer shared with Melba Copland Secondary School. This happened in the last year or two. The map on the Melba Copland’s website from 2011 still sites Florey as part of its Priority Enrolment Area.
  • Gold Creek School (Year 7 to 10) slight adjustment to the north covering the suburb of Taylor. The suburb is actually part of the Priority Enrolment Area already in 2018 but suburb name is not listed as part, I am not sure why that is the case.
  • Amaroo School (Year 7 to 10) expanded to the north as well covering the suburb of Jacka. I had not reviewed the catchment in last year for ACT, it likely happened recently as well. This is not a significant change as Jacka was not covered by any other school previously.

“Priority Enrolment Area” which is what a particular address is zoned for the particular school. When discussed from the perspective of a particular school is often referred to as one of the following terms.

  • School Zone

Changes to Adelaide South Australia High School Zoning for 2019

There are not a lot of changes, the main changes being that Adelaide Botanic High School opened in 2019, it shares the exact same zone as Adelaide High School for 2019. In 2019 it actually expanded to the south and west side. However, the South Australian Department of Education changed that again for 2020. Adelaide High School and Botanic High School have reverted back to their 2018 school zone for 2020.

Another thing to note is that South Australian high school goes from year 8 to 12 instead of 7 to 12 like other states. This is changing in 2022 where all year 7 will be moved to the high schools and it becomes synced as the other states in Australia.

A bit of information on the newly opened Adelaide Botanic High School taken from the South Australian Department of Education and School’s website.

The zone change will only apply to new enrolments for 2020. Students currently enrolled at a CBD high school in 2019 can continue to attend, irrespective of where they live. Siblings of students enrolled in year 8 in 2019 and who continue to live in the affected areas will also be considered for enrolment at a CBD high school up to and including 2023.

2019 – year levels 8 and 9
2020 – year levels 8, 9 and 10
2021 – year levels 8, 9, 10 and 11
2022 – year levels 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12.*

The screenshot is taken from the Department of Education’s website and shows the zone for 2019 and how it revert in 2020.

Please note there are a number of different ways the term school zone is referred, they can be also called school catchment, intake areas etc. Some of the schools have defined a school zone, while the others are based on the closest distance between the student’s resident to the nearest school.

Victorian Secondary School Neighbourhood Zone/Catchment For Year 11

Not a lot of changes to the designated neighbourhood zone for year 11 enrolment in 2019. There is some minor adjustment, so I will not bother listing them. There are a lot of new schools opened in recent years, but their enrolment all the follow the pattern of year 7 in the first year and year 8 in the next year and so on and so on. Most of the new school opening recently won’t be accepting year 11 enrolment until 2022 and 2023.

Changes to Melbourne/Victoria Secondary School Zone For 2019 (Year 7)

This update took a lot longer than I originally expected. I am also having to commit a lot of extra out of office hours to push this major project right now which means less time spending on this site for the time being. Anyhow following are the list of major changes.

Prahran High School is newly opened and results in the shrinking of the nearby schools. Most of central Melbourne looks like all received specific zones.

Patterson River Secondary College received a specific zone and resulting in changes with surrounding schools.

Melba Secondary College junior campus closed and what used to be senior campus look to be now accommodating both junior and senior high school enrolment. so this resulted in changes of a fairly significant amount for zoning of junior high schools enrolment in the surrounding area

Melbourne girls college zone map should also be more accurate as well.

Alkira Secondary College has a newly defined zone which comes into effect for 2019.

Gladstone Park Secondary College zone extension to the northeast corner, the expansion has come at the expanse of Hume Central Secondary College (Dimboola Road Campus) and Roxburgh College.

New Preston High School opened in Melbourne this resulting in fairly major changes of surrounding schools zone as well. In particular, this will affects Coburg High School, Northcote High School, Thornbury High School and Reservoir High School (Reservoir Campus) which all have shrunken due to the new high school opening.

The proper name used by the Victorian Department of Education is called “Designated neighbourhood school” which is what a particular address is zoned for the particular school. When discussed from the perspective of a particular school is often referred to as one of the following terms.
