Victorian public schools are thriving. Every public school is at the heart of its community – providing valuable connections and a nurturing environment so our children can develop confidence, social skills and healthy life habits.
Public schools are places where every child matters and belongs. Visit your local school, speak with the principal and find out what makes your public school a great place to enrol your child.
Choosing a school
Your child will usually go to the public school closest to where your family lives. However, every child is different and each school can provide them with different things.
You may want to make a list of all the things that are important to you and your child before visiting the schools you’re interested in. Schools welcome enquiries and will organise a time to visit. Find out how to choose a school.
How to enrol
You can apply to enrol your child in a public school at any time during the year. Enrolment is made directly with the school.
To enrol your child you’ll need to fill out an enrolment form and provide the school with important information about your child.
