Under the Placement Policy, schools are required to prioritise enrolment for students living in the school zone. This has not changed and the Department always seeks to ensure the policy is applied consistently across the state.

Information regarding school zones can be found through the below website:


Parents who wish to send their children to schools located outside their school zone still have this choice. However, students enrolling at a school from within the school zone, will have first priority. This is consistent with current policy.

Baxter Primary School is happy to consider all applications, based on individual need.

Transition Sessions

At Baxter Primary School, we understand the importance of preparing students for change. We offer an extensive transition program to help ensure students know what to expect as they transition from Kindergarten to school. Students will have the opportunity to meet teachers, peers and older buddies prior to commencing school. In addition to classroom activities, children will gain an insight into a variety of Baxter Primary programs including Art, STEAM and Physical Education.
