What are the school fees?
School fees vary from year to year. Refer to current Parent Payments under the OUR COMMUNITY tab.
Is Auburn Primary School zoned?
Your child has the right to attend their designated neighbourhood school. All Victorian Government schools in Metropolitan Melbourne, and some regional areas, including Auburn Primary School, have a boundary which is referred to as a zone. This zone can change slightly year to year, due to the needs of a suburb, including the creation of new schools. You can check which primary and secondary school you are zoned to by going to https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au.
You can find further information about school zones at https://www.education.vic.gov.au/parents/going-to-school/Pages/zones-restrictions.aspx
Does Auburn Primary School accept out of school zone enrolments?
If capacity exists, YES we accept out of zone enrolments. Capacity varies year to year. If you want to apply as an out of school zone applicant, we encourage you to do this as soon as possible. An assessment of our capacity to accept out of zone applicants occurs early August.
Consideration of out of zone enrolments is at the discretion of the Principal who under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 will identify whether there is sufficient accommodation for the child at that school at the time.
When do I need to enrol my child?
We ask that enrolments are submitted by early term 2 (April/May) in the year before your child starts school. Submission of your enrolment by that date will ensure your child will be able to actively participate in all transition activities including visits to their kindergarten by Auburn Primary School staff, and transition sessions at the school held from early Term 4.
How do I enrol my child?
