Enrolling at our school

North Arm State School recognises as its prime obligation, the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school's catchment area.
 
Because of enrolment capacity and growth North Arm State School may be unable to meet this obligation in the future, unless action is taken now to manage enrolments. The Principal must restrict enrolment of out-of-catchment students to ensure in-catchment students can enrol at their local state school, without requiring additional facilities.
 
A copy of the current North Arm State School Enrolment Plan is available from the related links section and in our Enrolment Pack available for download.
 
 
Please call the school office on (07) 5472 9888 to make an appointment with the Principal.  Please allow at least half an hour to go through the enrolment process.  
 
Parents or caregivers must be the adults enrolling the students.
 
Enrolment packages are available from the school office.  The package contains a number of forms you will need to complete. A parent information booklet is available for download from our website and it will answer some of your questions.
