Locating a school

If you are relocating within or moving to Victoria it is best to firstly establish the approximate area/region in which you intend to reside.
Having done that if you are intending to enrol in a state mainstream or specialist school you could then contact the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Welfare and Disability Manager for that region - see contact list below. This person could then discuss possible schools for you to approach.
