Eligibility for Enrolment


The general requirement for enrolment in the Longreach School of Distance Education  (LSODE) in 2016 is that the student seeking enrolment is:
 
​an Australian citizen or permanent resident; or
​a child of an Australian citizen or permanent resident; and
​is a resident of Queensland with a Queensland address.

Proof of Queensland residency may be requested to support enrolment under some categories. This may take the form of a copy of electoral roll registration, current rates notice or equivalent documentation.

Families seeking enrolment with LSODE who are not currently residents of Queensland but residing in Australia, may present a case, in writing, to outline circumstances which exist that can be considered in making a determination with regard to enrolment. Students are required to have access to a personal computer and internet access in order to receive all available services from the school. The school recommends a 1Mbps broadband connection.

Age requirements

Prep program NB. Prep in 2017 is compulsory​

To be eligible for enrolment in the Prep program in 2017 your child must have been born between 1 July 2011 and 30 June 2012. Before enrolment can be accepted, proof of date of birth must be submitted, eg. photocopy of birth or baptismal certificate, clinic card or passport. 

Early entry into Prep

The Education (General Provisions) Regulation 2006 states: ‘A State School’s Principal may enrol a child in the preparatory year at the school, regardless of the child’s age, if the Principal’s supervisor is satisfied the child:
  • had started education in another State or country that is equivalent to the preparatory year; and
  • is ready for education in the preparatory year, having regard to the child’s attributes.
 
If you believe your circumstances meet the conditions stated above and you wish to seek early entry in the Longreach School of Distance Education Prep program, please direct your enquiries to the Principal. 

Year 1

To be eligible for enrolment in Year 1 in 2017, your child must have been born between 1 July 2010 and 30 June 2011. Before enrolment can be accepted, proof of date of birth must be submitted, eg. photocopy of birth or baptismal certificate, clinic card or passport.

Early entry into Year 1

Parents and carers of children of preparatory age can seek early entry to Year 1 for their child in place of enrolment in the preparatory year. As part of an application for early entry into Year 1, parents will need to provide evidence of the child’s aptitude and ability, social and emotional competence, physical development and level of knowledge and understanding that suggest Year 1 is an appropriate placement.
 
You should first discuss your intention to make an application with the Principal. The Principal will be able to provide information about the application process and possible sources of evidence.

Other year levels

A child will be enrolled into their age-appropriate year level. Programming may be adjusted to accommodate a child’s individual learning needs. Any requests for accelerated programs must be negotiated with the Principal in consultation with guidance staff.
