The ACT Education Directorate has updated the enrolment and transfer arrangements for all ACT public schools.
If you are enrolling your child to start school or if your child is transferring to an ACT public school at any stage, you will need to use an online form. This online Enrolment and Transfer Form and the Parent / Carer Guide to Enrolment / Transfer for ACT Public Schools are located in the 'Enrolling in an ACT Public School' section of the Education Directorate website http://www.education.act.gov.au/
If you have difficulty accessing a computer to complete the online enrolment form please come to the school for assistance. A translator can be arranged should you require one. Please make an appointment on 6142 0044.
To make the process more equitable, there is no longer any need to queue at the school on 28 April to enrol your child. All enrolment requests are stored electronically and sent to the first choice school after 30 May. Decisions regarding offers of enrolment/transfer are made after the closing date.
Early Entry or accelerated entry is offered to eligible families to meet the needs of their children in the early years of their education. Eligibility information and procedures are located on the Education Directorate website.
All enquiries regarding enrolment in the child care component of Lyons Early Childhood School should be directed to the Child Care Director on 02 6142 0054.
Parents/carers are welcome to apply to enrol/transfer their son or daughter at any time during the school year using an online application form. Full details are available from the Education website.
