Our School

Our school was designed to cater for children from Kindergarten to Year 10. The first section of the school was opened on 19 May 2004 by Ms Katy Gallager, MLA and Minister for Education, Youth and Family Services. Our first intake of 154 students, in 2004, included those from Kindergarten to Year 5. This was extended to Year 8 in 2005 with Year 9 students starting in 2006 and Year 10 students in 2007. Since the incorporation of the Preschool in 2008, Amaroo School has operated as a Preschool to Year 10 school and presently has 2006 students.

Enrolling at Amaroo: Amaroo School is a community school that caters for students in our 'Priority Placement Area' (PPA) and our procedures are consistent with the ACT Department of Education and Training's policy

For further information please look at the Priority Placement Areas as allocated by the Department of Education for Amaroo School for Primary students or High School students or contact the school by email (info@amaroos.act.edu.au).
