  1. Hello

    The nearest public high school in our area is John Edmondson High school which is literally a 4-5 minute drive from Edmondson Park, but the catchment says Casula High School? which is about a 10 minute drive without traffic, but the Camden Valley high way and Hume high way especially in the morning can take up to 15-20 minutes.

    How do I get an exemption of getting my kid to John Edmondson High school?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Jack,

      NSW department of Education had issued each school an enrolment cap, if there is space left after satisfying local enrolment, it is allowed to accept out of zone enrolment. So your best bet would be try for out of area application, this is common occurrence in Sydney. However, whether the application is accepted or not will depend on the school in question. So you will have to apply and contact the school in question to see if this possible in your case.
