Year 7 – 8 Transition Process

At the end of term 1, all Year 7 students will receive an envelope containing important information which begins the transition process from primary school to high school. A ‘Registration of Interest’ (Placement in Year 8 in a SA Government School) ED176 form is included in the pack, which indicates the high school to which your child has been allocated based on their current enrolled address. This information cannot be changed unless adequate proof of residency is submitted.

All STUDENTS ATTENDING GOVERNMENT AND NON-GOVERNMENT HIGH SCHOOLS IN 2019 MUST RETURN THE ‘Registration of Interest’ ED176 form to the Burnside Primary School Front Office by Friday 25th May 2018.

GOVERNMENT HIGH SCHOOL Enrolment Process
All students enrolling at a government high school MUST return the ‘Registration of Interest’ ED176 form by the due date indicating which government school they will be attending.
Students, who are enrolling at a government school under the sibling rights rule, must include a photocopy of the sibling student ID card with their ‘Registration of Interest’ ED176 form.
Families will be notified of the outcome of their child’s placement on August 17th, 2018.

Written submissions requesting enrolment at another high school other than the zoned high school must address the following criteria:
Distance
