2022 - 2023 Elisabeth Murdoch College School Zone and Enrolments
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones. 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 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.
Out of Zone Families
Elisabeth Murdoch College follows the Department of Education’s placement guidelines when placing students at the College in Year seven. If your primary place of residence falls outside the designated Zone for our College, we ask that you write a letter addressed to our Principal stating the reasons you would like your child to attend Elisabeth Murdoch College. Please attach this to your “Application for Year 7” pack that is returned to your primary school by Friday 13th May 2022.
This document will then be forwarded onto our College and assessed by our transition team in accordance to the placement guidelines.
We ask that this is NOT forwarded to the College separately.
If your primary place of residence falls outside of our designated zone and your Year six student has a sibling whom is already enrolled at the College and will also be attending in 2023, we ask that this is also included on both your transition form in the area provided for siblings and also in your out of zone application letter (Please provide the Full Name, Homegroup and Year level of the sibling attending Elisabeth Murdoch College).
