Palm Beach Currumbin State High recognises as its prime obligation the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students residing within this community as defined by its local catchment area.
Because of enrolment capacity and growth, Palm Beach Currumbin State High may be unable to meet this obligation in future unless action is taken to manage enrolment. The enrolment management plan sets out the conditions under which students may be enrolled into this school. For further information, please refer to the Enrolment Management Plan (PDF, 45KB).
Students from outside the local catchment area may wish to apply for enrolment in an Excellence Program as per the criteria for selective entry.
If you wish to apply for Selective Entry @ PBC you will find all relevant information under Curriculum/Excellence Programs on this website.
Transferring from another school
A Certificate of Transfer should be obtained if a student transfers from one Queensland state school to another. The Interstate Student Data Transfer Note system is designed to transfer information between schools about students who move interstate, enabling new schools to support the educational placements of new students. Information on school policies, courses, and enrolment procedures are available on this website.
When transferring between schools:
Consider timing - will the move coincide with the change of term
Involve your children in discussions and decisions about moving - this may help allay any fears or concerns they have if you are moving from another state, be aware that Year 6 is the final year of primary school in Queensland
Discuss the forthcoming move with your current school and collect documentation outlining student achievement levels and education history
Prepare a list of your children's particular needs - e.g. preferred subjects, sporting and other interests
Transport needs, extracurricular activities
Consider subject choices, special education provisions, transport to and from school, traineeship programs, and cultural and sporting opportunities
Consider behaviour management, discipline and uniform policies, the school buildings and grounds.
