Transition to Year 7 It is never too early to think about your child’s next step in education. If your child is in year 4 or 5 you should be familiarising yourself with what is on offer in your area. The state government has zoned all government schools but sometimes it is possible to attend a school out of your zone. The criteria that government schools use is:
- If you are in their zone your child will automatically have a place.
- If your child has a sibling then you could be offered a place.
- If there are still places available they measure how close you are to the zone.
Find your school zone here: https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au/
Below is a link to the guide for government schools. Please take a look and go along to the information evenings that are on offer every year. Schools are now offering them virtually! Or book an appointment with your school for a tour or a chat. https://victoriaschoolguides.starcommunity.com.au/government-%20schools-guide/
If you have any further questions do not hesitate to ask.
