The school catchment for Epping Height, Epping West and Roselea Public School had been redrawn for 2016. This most likely due to the current enrolment pressure on Eppings West Public School, undoubtedly one of the most popular one in Sydney especially within the Chinese community. There are large number of new developments are being completed in the school catchment and preemptive actions like this will prevent the school become over crowded. Currently the redrawing of the boundary is primarily at expense of Epping West Public School whom lost significant part of the catchment to both Roselea and Epping West Public School. Epping Height Public School traded parts to Roselea and picked up similar amount from Epping West Public School, this should be neutral in terms of enrolment number wise.
This is the new 2015 boundary
This is the new 2016 boundary
Enrolment policy related to changes in catchment
- Changes Apply for the January 2016 intake
- Families with children already at these schools and who live in these newly re-zoned areas can continue to enrol further siblings at the same school
- A short transition period will operate where students can enrol in an existing school if there is clear evidence of a property purchase before December 2015
- Following January 2016, such enrolments will be considered “non-local” and will be managed in line with that school’s enrolment policy
