Transferring From Another Australian School

We warmly welcome students and families from around Australia at Milgate PS.  We invite you to contact us directly via telephone or email.  Parents with students transferring from another School within Australia will need to notify their current school of their intention to transfer.  Please check with your current school's Office staff as to whether they require this in writing.

Age requirements for enrolment into a Victorian school may vary from interstate schools so students may be placed into a different Year Level from their current studies.  In Victoria this is guided by age to ensure they are with other students of a similar age group for both academic and social integration.

Further information is available on the Department of Education's website.
