The State Government’s Findmyschool website has been updated so parents continue to have the latest information to find out the school zone they live in.

Minister for Education James Merlino said the updates include school zones for the 14 new schools opening at the start of 2021.

The website allows parents to find their closest Government school and other nearby government schools, giving parents clarity and consistency on what their public school options are.

Schools can be found by typing in a residential address or searching by school name. Findmyschool will show the zone for the current enrolment year and the 2021 enrolment year.

No student currently enrolled in a school will be required to change schools.

When the site was launched last year, it was the first-time school zone maps became easily accessible in one place, giving schools and parents access to an official source of information on government school zones.

Minister for Education James Merlino said: “The website takes the guess work out of identifying their closest government school, giving parents the clarity they need when deciding which school to enrol their child in.”
