Enrolment Policy


Due to the high demand for places at our school, the Department of Education has designated Dianella Heights as a local intake area school. This means that first preference is given to families who reside within our intake area.


You can view our intake area by searching the Department of Education Schools Online. Please note we do not provide maps of our boundary area.


If you reside outside our intake area you are still welcome to apply for enrolment at our school but your child is not guaranteed a position.  Your application will be kept on file and if a vacancy arises you will be contacted.  Please DO NOT contact the school querying the status of your application. Please note that if we are not able to place your child in our school then you will need to come into the office to complete another application form for the following academic year.  Applications are not automatically rolled over to the following year. Placement decisions are based on a strict priority order as per the Department of Education Enrolment Policy.

Enrolment into Kindy at DHPS does not guarantee a place in Pre-Primary for the following year unless residence is within our intake area.   Parents of kindergarten students will need to re-apply for a position in Pre-Primary for the following year. Students who reside outside the boundary area are not guaranteed a position in this compulsory year of schooling.
