How to Enrol

Starting Preschool

South Australia has the same first day of preschool for all children. This is the first day of Term 1. The same first day of preschool will mean that every child will have four terms of preschool and then four terms of reception when they go to school.

Starting High School


Waiting List

In line with the DfE Year 6 to 7 enrolment process, students who miss out on Ƶ East as their 1st, 2nd and 3rd preferred high school will automatically be placed on our waiting list. Each application will be assessed by DfE (not Ƶ East) against the Out of District Enrolment criteria. Students will be placed on a ranked list according to the criteria. Parents and students will not be notified as to their ranked position on this list.

Once the official waiting list has been issued by DfE (usually late Term 3), it is then managed by Ƶ East. We will offer positions as they become available according to this ranked list. The list remains active for 12 months.

Our 6/7 Transition Program

Ƶ East has an extensive transition program in place to support students as they make the move from primary school to secondary school.
Our Transition team works extensively to gather information about each child, including aptitude in fitness, IQ, literacy, science and numeracy, and background on social issues.
With this information students are placed in subject classes where they are most likely to succeed.
Students will attend a full day visit in Term 4 to begin the process of orientation and information gathering. A Parent Information Night is also held in Term 4. Dates are available on our Calendar


Year 7 Subject Selection

Your transition pack contains information about starting at Ƶ in Year 7. As part of the transition process, parents/care providers must complete a Subject Selection and Student Information Form, in discussion with their child. They should also refer to the Curriculum Guide for further subject information. The subject selection form will be available later this year:

Curriculum Guide

School Information Booklet (SIB)


Starting School at Other Year Levels

Enrolment at all other year levels is by negotiation with the school. In most cases in the secondary school, zoning rules apply at all year levels. In the primary school, zoning will apply to individual year levels that are under enrolment pressure.

To give you a taste of a regular day at Ƶ, we offer you a tour of our College with one of our school leaders. Different dates apply to Years P-6 tours and Years 7-12 tours. Bookings are essential.
