Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at Merri Creek Primary School. Choosing a school for your child is an important decision, and we are here to guide you through this process.
It is important to note that at Merri Creek Primary School, we do not accept enrolments beyond the next school year.
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined based on your permanent residential address.
Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.
For families that reside outside the school zone, your child’s enrolment form should still be submitted and will be considered if there are spaces available.
We encourage all prospective families who are unfamiliar with our school with kindergarten-aged children who plan to start school the following year to register for a school tour.
The dates for the tours are May 14, 21, 28, June 4 and June 14, 2024.
Tours and presentations will take approximately 1½ hours and will commence from the school office located on Ida St, Fitzroy North.
Please complete the following enrolment form, also attaching the required documentation. Enrolment documentation can be returned in person or emailed to email@example.com
