Boroondara has a number of schools with enrolments that are restricted in various ways.  Camberwell Primary School is one of those schools.

Demand for enrolment at Camberwell Primary School exceeds capacity.  This means that Camberwell Primary School is currently not required to enroll any students residing outside its designated neighbourhood zone.  The existing boundary has been reviewed by the Department of Education and Training (DET) and the current map represents the current area for enrolment.

Boundaries are defined by demographic change.  Given changing demographics, multi-level housing and construction in the Camberwell area, we are unable to predict our future enrolment demand with any surety.  Whilst we will give as much notice as we are able about boundaries, we must remain mindful that school boundaries or neighborhood areas are defined by demographic information.  Boundaries are flexible and will change according to that demographic information and enrolment demand.

Enrolments are guaranteed if your residential property falls within our enrolment map.

Foundation enrolments will commence in Term 2.  Please contact the school with your information now.

The Education and Training Reform Act ensures students are entitled to enrol at their designated neighbourhood school or may apply to alternative schools subject to their capacity.

Your designated neighbourhood school is usually the nearest public school calculated by straight line distance.  Please visit Find My School to identify your designated neighbourhood school. Please note that there have been some slight changes to the enrolment map from previous years. The Find My School map is the one we will be using for 2020 and onwards.

All children residing in the zone are guaranteed enrolment.

Following Departmental guidelines, dependant on capacity which will be assessed on an annual basis to ensure that current students will be able to be accommodated throughout their time at school, children will be accepted in priority order:

  • siblings whose families currently reside out of the neighbourhood area
  • children for whom the curriculum we provide is of relevance – in our case French
  • children of families who live close to our boundary

This will be re-assessed for each subsequent year.

To determine whether the unique context of Camberwell Primary School is the best option for your child, we recommend that you visit our school on the occasion of one of on our open days or on a school tour (held once a fortnight). Following this, you will be required to complete the enrolment form and provide evidence of your place of permanent residence and information about your child. NOTE: Completion of the enrolment form is not a guarantee of a placement at Camberwell Primary School.

To assist Camberwell Primary School in assessing your child’s eligibility for enrolment, you are required to include in your enrolment application original or certified copies of:

1. Rental agreements  for a minimum of twelve months or unconditional contracts of sale


2. A copy of  two of the following:

  • electoral enrolment confirmation
  • council rates notices
  • other official documentation that demonstrates permanent residency at that address such as a driver’s license or health care card.

Documents should show the same address and parent’s/carer’s name as recorded on the school enrolment application form.

On request, you may also be required to complete a statutory declaration confirming the student is living in the address provided in the enrolment application and that the arrangement is genuine and intended to be permanent.

Note: Enrolment applications may not be successful if the requested documentation is not provided.

Please add a list of requirments for the child:

  • Birth certificate
  • Vaccinations
