Updated Zones For Great Local School Near Every Family

VIC Premier

The Andrews Labor Government has updated its Find My School website to give families the latest information about their local schools as they begin the process of enrolling their children for next year.

Minister for Education James Merlino today announced the website now reflects the 13 new schools and campuses set to open in 2023, along with some small changes to existing school zones to reflect changes in school provision and adjustments to improve accessibility for all students.

The website allows families to find their designated neighbourhood government school and other nearby government schools, giving families clarity on what their options are when enrolling their children.

Schools can be found by typing in a residential address or searching by school name or school categories like primary, secondary or specialist school.

When the Labor Government launched the site in 2019, it was the first time school zones were made easily accessible in one place, giving schools and families access to an official source of information on government school zones.

Every child has the right to enrol at their designated neighbourhood government school or – if there are sufficient places – at another government school of their choice.

In the past seven years, the Labor Government has invested more than $10.9 billion into building new schools and more than 1,700 school upgrades, creating around 13,500 jobs in construction and associated industries.

Work to open 100 new schools by 2026 is well ahead of schedule, with 61 new schools opening between 2019 and 2023.

Families can look up their school zone online at findmyschool.vic.gov.au

As stated by Minister for Education James Merlino

“We’re making huge progress on our work to open 100 new schools – and with new schools popping up right across the state, we’ve made some small changes to zones to make sure everyone has access to a fantastic local school.”

“As families begin to consider their children’s enrolments for next year, we’ve made sure they can get all the information on schools in their area in one spot – the Find My School website.”
