Answers to questions

Schools—enrolments

(Question No 1)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Education and Training, upon notice, on 9 December 2008:

How many (a) enrolments has the Department of Education and Training received and (b) placement offers have been made for the 2009 school year, for (i) pre-school, (ii) kindergarten, (iii) year 1 and (iv) year 2 years by each government (A) pre school or (B) school in the ACT.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Students only have to submit an enrolment to a school for their first year of attendance. Consequently, it is not possible for the Department to identify the total number of enrolments in a school prior to the census date. The most recent enrolment numbers for ACT public schools are contained in the ACT public school census August 2008 publication, which is available on the Department's website.

The Department does collect information on the prospective number of students enrolling for the first time in a school. This data can be used as a proxy estimate for prospective new enrolments. Official enrolment numbers cannot be finalised until the school census. Table 1 provides a summary of students who are prospective enrolments for the first time in each school by year level. It should be noted that this number is not the total number of expected enrolments as continuing students are not included. It should also be noted that, as some students elect to enrol in more than one school, the data in table 1 may be an over-estimate of the number that actually enrol.
