Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Check your address on School Finder to see if it is within our local intake area. Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol

Apply online. If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident you are eligible to complete the online enrolment application. You will then need to finalise the application at the school.

If you are not eligible or prefer not to enrol online, use the application to enrol (PDF 768.4KB) form. Please complete the form in English. A translated application to enrol may help you do this.

For more information, visit sTpe school enrolment.

For more information, visit:

Out-of-area enrolments

If your child does not live within our intake area, visit out-of-area enrolment. Out-of-area enrolment procedures are subject to the department’s enrolment policy.

If you have received an offer for an out-of-area placement, visit the online enrolment sign in page to accept or decline the offer.

Temporary visas and international students

The Temporary Residents Program has information about eligibility and the forms to complete an application.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.

For more information about educational opportunities in rural areas, visit Rural and distance education.

Our local intake area is changing. 

·       From the start of 2023, new enrolments can only be accepted from residents living inside the new local intake area

·       Parents can still apply as a non-local enrolment to an out of intake area school and their application will be considered on a case-by-case basis in line with the Department’s enrolment policy

Between August 2020 and Term 4 2022, parents and carers who live at an address impacted by these adjustments, will have the option to either:

·       Enrol their children in the school they are currently designated to

·       Enrol their children in the school they will be designated to in 2023

Siblings

From 2023, students can continue to enrol in the current school intake area school if they have a sibling in that school. This is regardless of whether the school is at enrolment capacity.

Planning to Enrol at BHPS

If you are planning to enrol your child at BHPS an Application to Enrol form needs to be completed with documentary evidence of a birth certificate, proof of residency and immunisation certificate.

Before enrolment can be accepted by the office all required documentation must be ready.

Please use our enrolment checklists to ensure your documentation is ready for lodgement:

Kindergarten Enrolment Checklist (PDF 205KB)

Years 1 to 6 Enrolment Checklist (PDF 33.5KB).

When enrolment has been accepted a confirmation letter will be sent.

A completed copy of the Special Religious Education and Special Education in Ethics Participation Letter (PDF 137 KB) will also need to be submitted with each new enrolment.

When lodging an enrolment you may want to consider becoming a volunteer at the school. To volunteer within the school you will need to complete a 'Working With Children Check'. This declaration must be completed by volunteers and non-child related contractors seeking engagement with the Department of Education  Appendix 5 – Declaration for volunteers and non child related contractors (PDF 167KB).
