Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.
The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations. Wandong Primary School currently has capacity to take children who live outside of our designated ‘zone’. This is dependent on the child’s current grade level and the families permanent residential address.

Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 12 May, some students will be returning to school from Tuesday 26 May.
The Victorian Chief Health Officer has advised that it is safe for Victorian school students and teachers to return to on-site schooling in a two-staged approach:
Stage 1 – from Tuesday 26 May
Early years students (Prep to Grade 2) and senior secondary students (Year 11 and 12) undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), and all specialist school students will return to on-site schooling. All staff will attend on-site.
Stage 2 - from Tuesday 9 June
Grade 3 to Year 10 students will return to on-site schooling, subject to health advice.
Given our current climate we have postponed our first Open Day evening and are likely to need to postpone our upcoming Open Day morning events on the 24th and 28th April. However, we are keen to send out information packs and have a phone conversation with any questions that you might have. If you would like to forward your current postal address and phone contact to firstname.lastname@example.org, we can organise for an information pack to be sent.
The information packs have a set of enrolment forms in them and we are urging families to forward their enrolment forms as soon as possible once they have made a decision. All schools are now ‘zoned’ and we are looking at running some transition sessions earlier rather than later this year. It’s important that our children in 2021 feel connected and have a strong transition plan. It will also ensure that once we reach capacity that our local families and early enrolments do not miss out on a place.
