(PEAs) Primary Schools 2017

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 detailed map of the PEAs for 2017 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).

  2. child lives in the  ACT and has a sibling attending the school (P-2)
