From June-December each year we will run subsequent lotteries on the first of every month for any grades in which our waitlist is exhausted. If you apply after the deadline for the initial lottery, you will be included in these subsequent lotteries.
We welcome all families to attend the lottery, but attendance is NOT MANDATORY to claim a seat should you receive one.
Contact Admission staff to update any information that may have changed after submitting your application. If we’re not able to get in touch with you, you may miss out an opportunity to join our school community.
