Doncaster Secondary College is a zoned school with a designated neighbourhood boundary. As demand for places at our College is high, evidence of residency within the designated boundary is required from students wishing to attend the College.
We aim to accommodate all families living within the boundary and have clearly defined enrolment guidelines to ensure the process is streamlined and consistent with Government legislation.
Doncaster Secondary College follows the Enrolment Policy and Placement Policy, as outlined by the Victorian Department of Education.
If you have any questions about enrolments, please contact the school office on 03 9848 4677 or email email@example.com.
Designated Neighbourhood Boundary
Doncaster Secondary College’s school zone is available on Findmyschool.vic.gov.au, which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2022 onwards. Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations. You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.
If you have a question about school zones, call the VSBA Hotline on 1800 896 950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact the school prior to finalising accommodation arrangements within the school zone.
Neighbourhood Boundary Map
Please refer to the Doncaster Secondary College Neighbourhood boundary map.
The student must be living with the parent or guardian* at the permanent address or spend a substantial part of their time at that address. The permanent residential address is defined as one where:
- The home is owned by the parent or guardian
- The home is under purchase
- The home is leased from a Registered Estate Agent for a minimum of 12 months from the time a child is to commence
The status of ‘permanent residence’ must be proven to the College’s satisfaction, so evidence of the above will be required to authenticate residence, particularly with regard to leased properties. Other evidence may be required and a home visit may be conducted. Any misleading or inaccurate claims will lead to the application being rejected or withdrawn at a later date.
* A parent/guardian is defined as one who has been legally appointed to take responsibility for the student making the application for enrolment.
