Small victory on schools

06 Mar 2014

Docklands has had a school-zoning victory, with every child in Docklands now able to attend their closest local primary school.

Speaking at the Docklands Community Forum on February 26, forum representative and local parent Janine Standfield said children living in the southern end of Docklands could now access Port Melbourne Primary School.

Previously children in this area had been “zoned out” of the school and could only access Carlton Primary School or Carlton Gardens Primary School.

Children living in the northern end of Docklands continue to be zoned to attend North Melbourne Primary School.

Secondary School zoning depends on how long families have lived in Docklands.

“Currently, children from families with a principle place of residence in Docklands before the end of 2012 can enrol in University High School,” Education Department spokesperson Simon Craig said.

“Children from families who took up residence in Docklands after January 2013 are being referred to Mount Alexander Secondary College,” Mr Craig said.
