Parents/carers are welcome to enrol/transfer their child at any time during the school year using the Education Directorate's online application form. The Education Directorate's Enrolment Policy (pdf, 284kb) provides an outline of the enrolment process in the ACT.
The initial enrolment consideration period for 2018 opens at 9am on 26 April 2017 and closes 9am Monday 29 May 2017. Applications will then be processed by schools and initial responses sent to families in late June 2017.
Turner School will hold information and open sessions during May for parents and carers of prospective students.
In keeping with the Directorate Enrolment Policy, Turner School accepts student enrolments in the following priority order:
- Students who live in Turner School's Priority Enrolment Area (PEA) & ACT resident siblings of students concurrently enrolled at the school
- ACT resident students outside of Turner PEA
- NSW resident students
Please see the ACT Education Directorate's page for how enrolment/transfer applications are decided.
To view a map of the 2017 PEA boundaries, visit the Allhomes website and at the bottom of the map select ACT Public School Zones and then Primary Schools.
