When using the online enrolment form, please note:

  • you can access the form from any computer or tablet when connected to the internet. The form works best in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge (completing the form on a mobile device is not recommended)
  • while completing the form you will be asked to upload copies of key documents that verify your young person’s identity and residential address 
  • documents should be uploaded in pdf. or jpg. format only
  • both parents will be asked to complete and authorise the enrolment, where appropriate. Once the first enrolling parent has completed their sections, an email will be automatically generated and sent to the second enrolling parent to complete the remaining sections. In these cases, the enrolment form will only be submitted once the second enrolling parent has completed their section.  

Parent information sessions 

To help your young person make the transition to high school, the Para Hills High School transition team will be holding parent information sessions for parents of incoming year 7 students.  The date will be confirmed in term 2, 2024

These sessions provide an opportunity for our staff to connect with families who have not had an enrolment interview or families who still have questions about their young person’s enrolment.

Our staff will also use these sessions to collect any outstanding paperwork, conduct school tours and arrange additional transition visits for students who need it.

Transition Days @ PHHS

Thursday 5 December & Friday 6 December 2024 

Transition will give new students the opportunity to experience life at Para Hills High School and ask any questions they may have. Students will be welcomed and organised into their pastoral care classes. Each class will then have a session with their pastoral care teacher, who will go through the school rules and procedures and take students on a tour of the school. During the day all students will have their ID photos taken and will participate in lessons in a variety of subjects.


Stationery (no more stationery lists - we will provide packs)

To ensure our new students start high school in an organised manner, we will provide each student with a stationery pack. The packs contain all the basics that students need, including pens, pencils, erasers, and rulers and more.
