2021 ENROLMENT INFORMATION

Online Enrolments for all 2021 ACT public school enrolments are now open for all year levels Preschool to Year 12.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Gold Creek School is a P-10 school. This means current preschool students* do not need to apply to continue to kindergarten and year 6 students do not need to complete an application to continue to year 7. All year 10 students will need to complete an application if they intend to progress to college education. (*The only exception to this are the preschool students, who do not currently live in the GCS enrolment area and received a 2020 Preschool offer on a ‘Preschool year only’. These families will need to complete an online enrolment form for 2021.)

 

Enrolment applications made between 28 April 2020 and 5 June 2020 will receive a school placement offer from 27 July 2020. Applications made after 5 June will receive their offers later in the year. Further information about the enrolment process and timeline, and access to the online enrolment form, can be found on the Education Directorate website.

 

School information events for 2021 enrolments will not be going ahead in 2020. Further information on alternative ways that this information might be made available to you will be outlined in future newsletters.
