Frequently Asked Questions

How many students are at Milgate PS?

In 2016 we now have around 570 students.


Is Milgate zoned?

No, we are not zoned. We are fortunate to have plenty of space for expansion as needed and generous grounds for our students to actively play outside. This means we can accept your child's enrolment, regardless of your home address in Victoria.


Will my child's enrolment be accepted?

Yes, we do not have a cap on the number of students we can accept. 

When do I need to enrol my child?

We request that enrolments are submitted by Term 3 in the year before your child starts school. This will ensure you are aware of the formal Transition program dates in Term 4 and will ensure any friendship or educational requests for your child are able to be taken into consideration.


Do you have any composite classes?

No, we don't have classes with composite/combined year levels.


What difference does being an IB World School make for my child?

The Victorian curriculum is incorporated into the PYP learning program.  Further to this, the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) prepares students to become active, caring and lifelong learners. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both within and beyond the classroom.

Through the IB Primary Years Program we challenge students to excel in their studies, and encourage both personal and academic achievement.
