Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at Doncaster Gardens Primary School.


Our school follows the Department of Education ‘Placement Policy’. This states that ‘eligible children and young persons have the right to be admitted to their designated neighbourhood government school, regardless of capacity’ based on their residential address. A student’s designated neighbourhood school is generally the school that is nearest the student’s permanent address as determined by the school zone.


Our school is using an online system for new enrolments to Victorian government schools, called VicStudents.


Can I use the online system to enroll my child?  

The online system is currently available for students who are enrolling in a Victorian government school for the first time. Generally, this includes:

  • Foundation (Prep) students
  • Students at any year level that are joining from interstate or a non-government school in Victoria.


To get started:

Visit https://students.educationapps.vic.gov.au/s/ to create an account and complete the online application form. Please contact us if you would prefer to submit a paper application form.


We will review the information submitted and be in contact with you.


Is VicStudents secure?

VicStudents has been assessed by the Department of Education to a high degree of security in line with the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards and is compliant with ISO 27001, the leading international standard for information security.
