School Zone

2021 Elisabeth Murdoch College School Zone and Enrolments

Due to the projected completion of 14 new Victorian Government schools, a small number of school zones have changed for 2021. This has affected the Elisabeth Murdoch College Zone due to a new Secondary College being built in the Cranbourne West area.

We ask that all parents of students wishing to enrol their child in Elisabeth Murdoch College in 2021 to check the “find My Schools” website via this link: https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au/ and ensure you select the 2021 enrolment year to get the most accurate enrolment information for your family.

Out of Zone Families

Elisabeth Murdoch College follows the Department of Educations 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 that is returned to your primary school.  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 2021, we ask that this is also included in your out of zone application letter and noted on the transition form. (Please provide the Full Name and Year level of the sibling attending Elisabeth Murdoch College).

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.
