(PEAs) Primary School 2018

The following information shows the schools which serve each suburb. Some parts of some suburbs cannot access all the listed schools due to certain suburbs being spread across a number of PEAs. Maps should be used as a general guide and should be viewed in conjunction with tables relating to specific schools. This guide does not include early childhood schools, special needs schools or ‘The Kindergarten to Year 6 French Program’ at Telopea School as they have no designate priority enrolment area.

A map of the PEAs for 2018 can be found for each school in the table below and 2017 PEAs can be found on the Allhomes website during the enrolment period.

You may find the Frequently Asked Questions helpful.

PEA boundaries are reviewed annually to ensure there is an acceptable balance between expected student placements and school capacities. Most boundaries will remain unchanged from year to year, while others may vary (see footnote).

The following table indicates the PEAs for Primary Schools for 2018

Footnotes

Priority Enrolment Areas (PEA) have been defined in terms of official suburban boundaries and street names, as shown on the map. Roads may be used as boundaries for PEAs. In these instances the roadway is the boundary.

Early childhood schools do not have a designated Priority Enrolment Area. Principals make offers of enrolment according to the following criteria:

  1. well-being considerations (evidence from a registered psychologist or medical specialist required)
  2. child lives in the ACT and has a sibling attending the school (P-2)
  3. child lives in the ACT and attends the long daycare program at the school
  4. child lives in the suburb where the school is located
  5. child lives elsewhere in the ACT
