Historically we fill our available seats with students who live in our zone; therefore if you do not live in the zone, the chance of receiving a placement in our school is extremely remote. Please do not contact the school to inquire about wait-list order until June. Historically have not been able to make wait-list offers at all, but in the event we will, it would not be until June at the earliest.

Students with special needs may be in an ICT classroom all day or for a portion of the day. The number of students with disabilities in an ICT classroom  does not exceed 40% of the total class register.
Parents of children with special needs applying to kindergarten must submit an application through Kindergarten Connect.
