Welcome to Kurunjang Primary School, thank you for your interest in our school, we are very excited to show you around and meet with you.
The Department’s Placement Policy embeds the legal entitlement for students to enrol at their designated neighbourhood school, and to enrol at another school if there is sufficient accommodation.
All Victorian government schools must manage enrolments in accordance with this Placement Policy, except those schools where the Minister has approved specific entry criteria, being:
The Regional Director has the authority to effect placement of a student.
Right to attend the designated neighbourhood school
Eligible children and young persons have the right to be admitted to their designated neighbourhood school
Eligible children and young persons have the right to be admitted to their designated neighbourhood government school, regardless of capacity.
A student’s designated neighbourhood school is generally the school that is nearest the student’s permanent address as determined by the school zone. The Find My School website provides guidance on which school zone a student’s permanent residence is located within.
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones.
Students residing in our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.
The Department provides guidance through the Enrolment: Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.
You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.

Each year we hold an information evening for families regarding the first year of school, usually held late in term 2, this gives families the opportunity to hear from our Foundation staff and the opportunity to go over what school may look like for your child.
In term 4 all enrolled students are given the opportunity to visit the school during school hours to participate in a series of transition sessions where they will be given the opportunity to experience what school is like and meet the staff and students of KPS.
