Changes to Priority Enrolment Area (PEA) for Kambah residents

The Education Directorate monitors population changes and trends across the ACT and looks at how these changes affects student enrolment in our public schools.  At times, this results in changes to the Priority Enrolment Areas (PEAs) - that is, which suburbs feed into which local school.

Currently, the PEA for residents of Kambah is shared between The Canberra College and Lake Tuggeranong College.  Population changes brought about largely because of the development of Molonglo mean that Kambah’s PEA needs to change.  From the commencement of the 2018 school year 2018 Kambah residents will be a shared PEA suburb for enrolment into Lake Tuggeranong College and Erindale College.

For many Kambah residents this change will be irrelevant as they have already made choices to enrol at either Lake Tuggeranong or Erindale College.  This does not mean that Kambah residents will be unable to apply to attend Canberra College. It just means they will not have priority for enrolment but  their applications will be considered with other non-PEA applications.  This information will be affirmed through the Tuggeranong and South-Weston high school communities in coming days.

Proposed changes to PEAs for a number of schools across the Territory for the 2018 school year can be found on the ACT Education Directorate website.
