Student Enrolment

Due to its high standing in the local and wider community, Mount Ridley P-12 College has had to implement a student enrolment management plan as it does not have the ability to meet the enormous demand that exists for enrolments. 

 

The Regional Director has put in place an enrolment ceiling where students who reside in the College’s designated neighbourhood area have enrolment priority.


In accordance with Department of Education and Training (DET) guidelines, Mount Ridley P-12 College’s designated neighbourhood area is defined as that area for which the College is the nearest primary or secondary school, measured in a straight line, to a student’s permanent residential address.

 

Students will be enrolled according to DET policy.
 

These criteria in priority order are:

1 - Students for whom Mount Ridley P-12 College is the nearest Government primary or secondary school to their permanent place of residence.  Proof of residence will be required.

2 - Students who have a brother or sister currently enrolled and attending Mount Ridley P-12 College.

3 - Remaining places, if any, will be allocated on the basis of proximity to the College of the student’s residential address.

 

ENROLMENT PROCESS

 

The Mount Ridley Prep – Year 12 College has two student enrolment processes:

 

1. Student enrolments during the year

Parent/Guardian contacts the College by telephone on 8338 3600.
An information package is made available for the parent/guardian to collect from the College’s Main Administration Office and an enrolment interview time is set after evidence of residence is confirmed.

 

Prospective student and parent/guardian attend the enrolment interview, bringing the most recent copy of the student’s report with them.

 

Upon acceptance of the College’s enrolment conditions, a completed enrolment form, a copy of the student’s birth certificate (or Visa/Passport, if applicable) and an immunisation certificate are forwarded to the College. 

 

Students may commence after the completed details on the enrolment form have been entered onto the College’s administrative system.  Students must also be in full school uniform upon commencement.

 

2.  Student enrolments commencing at the start of  a school year

Prep and Year 7

A specific transition and enrolment program (incorporating kindergarten and school visits, students attending transition classes at the College, assessments of students’ skills and parent/guardian information evenings) is utilised for Prep and Year 7 students in the year prior to the student commencing at the College.


Parents/Guardians of prospective Prep students are able to collect an enrolment package from the Main Administration Office after our Information Evening held in May.  The completed enrolment form should be returned to the Main Administration Office by the end of July in the year prior to the student commencing at the College.  Proof of residence is required.


Departmental guidelines do not allow parents/guardians of Year 6 students to directly enrol their child into Year 7.  The Year 7 enrolment process is administered through the child’s primary school.  A departmental Year 7 student placement timeline (administered through the Northern Regional office), setting out key dates and procedures, is published each year.

Year Levels other than Prep and Year 7

Prospective parents/guardians of students in all Year levels other than Prep and Year 7 wishing to enrol their child at the commencement of a school year should collect an enrolment package from the Main Administration Officer.  Proof of residence will be required.  The prospective student and parent/guardian attend the enrolment interview, bringing the most recent copy of the student’s report with them.
Upon acceptance of the College’s enrolment conditions, a completed enrolment form, along with a copy of the student’s birth certificate (or Visa/Passport if applicable) and an immunisation certificate are forwarded to the College.  A copy of the student’s most recent report is also required.
In certain instances, an enrolment interview may be required in order to support the student’s transition into the College.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

Students enrolling into Prep must turn 5 years of age by the 30th April in the year of commencement. Copies of birth and immunisation certificates (or Visa/Passport, if applicable) must be provided.
