Casuarina Street Primary School, is nestled in the expanding suburb of Katherine East and supports a student enrolment of approximately 420 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).
