The government’s Findmyschool website has been updated to provide parents with the latest information to find the school zone they live in.
The website allows families to find their closest, and other nearby, government schools, giving clarity on what their options are.
Schools can be found by typing in a residential address or searching by school name. Findmyschool will show the zone for the current enrolment year and the 2022 enrolment year.
Every child has the right to enrol at their designated neighbourhood government school or, if there is capacity, at another government school of their choice.
No student currently enrolled in a school will be required to change schools.
When the site was launched in 2019, it was the first time school zones were easily accessible in one place.
Acting Premier and Minister for Education James Merlino said the updated website includes school zones for the 14 new schools and campuses opening in 2022.
“We will deliver 100 new government schools by 2026 and when a new school opens, the zones around nearby schools have to change to accommodate it,” Mr Merlino said.
“The website takes the guesswork out of identifying their closest government school, giving families the clarity they need when deciding which school to enrol their child in.”
In the past five years, the government has invested more than $9 billion in more than 1600 school upgrades – creating more than 10,000 construction jobs – and is now ahead of schedule on its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 48 new schools opening between 2019 and 2022.
