The certificate of immunisation is the only document that can be accepted by schools and is provided to parents by the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register. It is also possible to download and Immunisation History Statement via the Medicare website.

REQUIREMENTS TO COMPLETE AN ENROLMENT


Albert Park Primary School Catchment Zone

There is a requirement that families reside in the catchment area of the school and all applicants must provide the school with proof of residential address before an application may proceed.

The current boundary, as set out by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, is Pickles Street-City Road, Ferrars Street, Kerferd Road and Beaconsfield Parade. If your residential address is outside this area we are obliged to direct you to contact either Middle Park Primary School or Port Melbourne Primary School. The north/west side of Pickles Street is outside our zone, as is the South side of Kerferd Road.  Even if you reside within the boundary, this does not guarantee you a place for next year, as the boundary is re-assessed by the Department each year (and sometimes during the year), according to the level of enrolments and applications to each of the schools in the area.  Unfortunately this is not something over which we have control.

All applicants for enrolment at Albert Park Primary School must provide the school with proof of their residential address before an application may proceed.

At least two pieces of evidence, one from each of list A and list B, must be provided in original form -

List A:

  • Council rate notice or listing from council’s rates database
  • Residential lease or bond lodgement receipt – lease must be at least 12 months duration

List B:

  • Utility bill – gas, water, electricity, phone – must be less than eight weeks old
  • Drivers licence
  • Bank statement – must be less than eight weeks old

Applicants may also be called on to sign a statutory declaration as a proof of residential address.

The school reserves the right to undertake further checks should it consider that insufficient proof is provided.
