Local Intake Area

Many schools have what is termed ‘a local-intake area’.  This is a boundary set around a school that may have more applications for enrolment than it can accommodate.

If your usual place of residence is within our local-intake area, your Pre-Primary to Year 6 children are automatically accepted into our school – this is your guaranteed place.  You are encouraged to enrol as soon as you can so the school can plan for your child.


The local-intake area maps are based on a written description of the local-intake area (LIA) for the school as published in the WA Government Gazette.  Although the map closely represents the LIA description, for some houses near the boundary (especially on street corners), it may be necessary to refer to the written description.  The street address of a residence is used to determine whether that dwelling is inside a particular LIA.  While local-intake areas for most schools do not change from year to year, changes may be made to local-intake areas as required.  Such changes are published in the WA Government Gazette and subsequently the local-intake area map will be updated.
