Selecting a Secondary School that best meets the needs and aspirations of their children requires time and effort on the part of the parents.We encourage all parents to explore secondary school options for their children as early as possible. You should allow plenty of time to visit different schools, attend information sessions and talk to other parents. The Victorian Department of Education offers useful information that should help you get started with the selection and enrolment process:https://www.education.vic.gov.au/parents/going-to-school/Pages/year-6-to-7.aspxThis DET publication contains extensive information for parents of children beginning secondary school.
