Are you told what school you put your child into, based on where you live? Or can you make the choice of where you'd like to enrol them? We are thinking of building a house in the next few years and if schools accept only those who live in the direct area we'll choose our house/land based on that.

The one my two will go to is a small school that is happy to take enrolments from an extended area (ie about 5 surrounding suburbs as well as ours) as they are small and are looking for numbers, plus our suburb is very small.
However a friend is trying to get her son into a primary school a couple of suburbs away from where she lives and she has been told that she has virtually no hope of getting him in.

Things may have changed in recent years but I thought OC classes were 'zone' classes for a number of schools in the area, ie you may have a child attending their local primary school who gets invited into the OC class and if it's not at their school they can enrol in the new one.

If you have your heart set on a particular school then you would be best to ensure you are inside their boundaries

Like Chelley said, it's best to try and be in area, but there is no preference when it comes to the OC class. Sounds like the whole school is good though
