Local applicants

Findmyschool.vic.gov.au hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2021 onwards. To see if MGC is the designated neighbourhood school for your permanent place of residence, type your address, choose ‘Secondary’ and ‘Single Sex’. Only if MGC is listed is it your designated neighbourhood school:

If you have a question about school zones call the VSBA Hotline on 1800 896 950 or email vsba@edumail.vic.gov.au

For the purpose of student enrolment in Victorian government school, the Department considers permanent place of residence as the address at which a child permanently resides at the time of enrolment. If a child resides at multiple addresses, the child’s ‘permanent residence’ is the address at which the child spends the majority of her weekdays.

Property or Lease documents must be under the parent’s name. For enrolment purposes the lease should be registered through a Real estate agent where possible, and must be concurrent to the year of enrolment. Applications from families with private rental agreements to reside with relatives living within the zone may not be accepted. Please contact the school for more information. The expectation of enrolment under ‘local’ status is that the family will need to be living within the MGC zone at the commencement of the school year. Enrolment will be jeopardised should inaccurate information be provided.

Families will be requested to provide documented evidence to verify their residential address:

  • 1. A copy of Rates Notice or Lease Agreement (the Lease Agreement should be through a registered Real Estate Agent where possible and must be concurrent to the year of enrolment); and
  • 2. A copy of the most recent electricity or gas account or letter of connection.

3. Plus one of the following (showing your current residential address):

  • A copy of a Driver’s Licence; or
  • A copy of a telephone/internet account; or
  • A copy of the electoral roll listing; or
  • A letter from Medicare or other government agency.

Applicants must also submit a copy of their most recent school report.

Enrolment applications may not be successful if the requested information is not provided.

On request, you may also be required to complete a statutory declaration confirming the student is living in the address provided in the enrolment application and that the arrangement is genuine and intended to be permanent.

All other applicants

Melbourne Girls’ College accepts students from outside of the local area. The number of students that we are able to accommodate under this category is determined by the number of vacancies available after local students have been allocated a space.

Applicants must submit a copy of their most recent school report when completing the application.

Visiting MGC

As such, the College has taken this into account accommodating an interactive Virtual School Tour available on our website for those who are unable to attend our College Open Day.
