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.
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
if there is sufficient spare capacity
after reserving places for students who move into the catchment during the
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
