Cheltenham Girls’ High School Enrolment Policy

Our school enrolment policy has been developed with the agreement of the Principal, parents and the Director of Public Education. Our policy can be viewed on our Policy Library Page and is reviewed each year by the enrolment panel.

False or Misleading Enrolment Information or Practices

The “Application to Enrol in a NSW Government School” form requires the applicant to declare the information provided is correct. It also makes it clear the provision of false information can result in the enrolment being reversed. Any decision to reverse an enrolment needs to take into account the special circumstances of the matter. This includes determining if the student was an ‘out of area enrolment’.

If a person knowingly provides materially false or misleading information to a school when making an application for enrolment, this may be an offence which has a penalty of up to 2 years imprisonment, $22,000 fine or both (Section 307B of the Crimes Act 1900).

If a person provides a statutory declaration, he or she knows to be false for the purpose of gaining entry to a school, he or she commits an offence which has a maximum penalty of 7 years imprisonment (Section 25A of the Oaths Act 1900).
