A student will normally attend the school located in the catchment area in which their parents or legal guardians reside unless there is no physical, resource or program space available.

Currently, the above provision may need to be applied more frequently, potentially resulting in more students needing placement outside their catchment school. In this case, students will be placed at a nearby school by the District Administrator for Central Registration.

Information about both kindergarten registration, grades 1 - 12 school registration and non-catchment school transfer applications are available on our district website.
