Prospective Enrolment Info for the following year


For all new student enrolment applications for 2023 please visit the Education Directorate Website.

Online Enrolments for all 2023 ACT Public School enrolments will open at 6am 26 April 2022 for all year levels from preschool to Year 12.  Your child can only start preschool if your child turns four on or before 30 April 2023, every four-year-old is guaranteed 15 hours of preschool.

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 2022 Preschool offer on a 'Preschool year only'. These families will need to complete an online enrolment form for 2023.)

Enrolment applications made between 26 April 2022 and 3 June 2022 will receive a school placement offer from 25 July 2022. Applications made after 4 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 using this link:
