Casua­r­i­na Street Pri­ma­ry School, is nes­tled in the expand­ing sub­urb of Kather­ine East and sup­ports a stu­dent enrol­ment of approx­i­mate­ly 400 stu­dents. Due to the ongo­ing demand for stu­dent enrol­ments, par­tic­u­lar­ly in the ear­ly years, Casua­r­i­na Street oper­ates under an Enrol­ment Man­age­ment Plan. Enrol­ment man­age­ment plan­ning is utilised to ensure that stu­dents liv­ing with­in the school’s catch­ment area are able to access their local school.

Enrol­ment man­age­ment plan/​catchment zone

Enrol­ment of stu­dents from out­side the local catch­ment area will be man­aged to ensure that the total cur­rent and fore­cast enrol­ments do not exceed the school’s cur­rent built capac­i­ty and where applic­a­ble will ensure there is an even spread of stu­dents across year lev­els or class groupings.

Check the Catch­ment Area Zon­ing Map to ensure your res­i­den­tial address is with­in the Casua­r­i­na Street Pri­ma­ry School’s catch­ment area. 

If you reside out­side the catch­ment area you may make a writ­ten appli­ca­tion to the prin­ci­pal out­lin­ing the rea­sons why you would like your child to attend Casua­r­i­na Street Pri­ma­ry School. Your appli­ca­tion will be placed on a wait­ing list and con­sid­ered in order of receipt. With the excep­tion of new Tran­si­tion enrol­ments at the begin­ning of a school year, a deci­sion regard­ing appli­ca­tions will be made with­in two weeks of receipt depen­dent upon enrol­ment num­bers at that time.

Par­ents who wish to enrol their child at Casua­r­i­na Street Pri­ma­ry School under the Enrol­ment Man­age­ment Plan will need to demon­strate that the child to be enrolled resides with­in the catch­ment area. 


Enrol­ments will not be approved with­out enrol­ment admin­is­tra­tion staff sight­ing and copy­ing your child’s orig­i­nal birth cer­tifi­cate and up to date immu­ni­sa­tion record. Our admin­is­tra­tion staff will sight the orig­i­nal, make a copy and return the orig­i­nal to you imme­di­ate­ly. If your child will be start­ing Tran­si­tion, down­load the Tran­si­tion Enrol­ment or col­lect a hard copy from our school admin­is­tra­tion (avail­able from Term 3).
