Enrolment Catchment Information

Dakabin State School recognises as its prime obligation, the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school’s catchment area.
 
Because of enrolment capacity and growth Dakabin State School may be unable to meet this obligation in the future, unless action is taken to manage enrolments. The Principal must restrict the enrolment of out-of-catchment students to ensure in-catchment students can enrol at their local state school, without requiring additional facilities.
 
Parents or legal guardians who wish to enrol their child at the school will need to demonstrate that the student’s principal place of residence is within the catchment area. Current proof of residency at the address indicated can be provided by way of one of each of the following:
·         One primary source – a current rental/lease agreement, or rates notice, or unconditional contract of sale; and
·         One secondary source – a utility bill (e.g. electricity, gas) showing this same address and parent’s/legal guardian’s name.
 
 
Out-of-Catchment application
Applications from any other person, not meeting the criteria outlined above, is an out-of-catchment application. Enrolment of students from outside the local catchment area is restricted to ensure that enrolments do not exceed the Student Enrolment Capacity. This school can only enrol out-of-catchment students:
 
  1. if there is sufficient spare capacity after reserving places for students who move into the catchment during the year; and
  2. after taking into account the school’s projected future enrolment growth.
 
Out-of-catchment students applying for enrolment at this school are placed on a waiting list and assessed in order of receipt.
