    Default Changing Schools

    So this may be a dumb question.....

    But we are thinking of relocating to the Sunshine Coast (Mountain Creek/Buderim perhaps) dd is about to start grade 2 this year but we probably wont be ready to move until term 2.

    Do we need to secure a house in the catchment before we enrol her or can we enrol her and say we are moving and dont have a house yet?

    Finding the right school for dd is my main priority atm as where she is now is fantastic I hope to find something similar

    Not sure in QLD but in NSW you have to have a current lease or proof of home ownership to secure a spot in your catchment area, otherwise you have to put your current address and apply out of area - maybe call the principal and ask if there is a wait list and see how popular the school is?

    If it is a zoned school usually you need to show proof of your address prior to enrollment. No harm in ringing and asking once they reopen though.

    Once we know if we are moving is a definite will definitely give them a ring. Dh will be moving before me and the kids so need to look at schools before deciding where to live
