Q. Do I have to live locally to attend MGSC?
A. Not at all. Students travel from over 42 different suburbs to attend the College. If MGSC is not your designated neighbourhood secondary school, complete the MGSC out of zone application form and return it to your school.
Q. How do I find out if we live in or outside the zone?
See the Our School Zone page on this website.
Q. What are the public transport options for travelling to and from Mentone Girls’ Secondary College?
A. Many bus routes pass the school and the Mentone train station is an easy walk away. The following website can assist you with locating the transport options: Public Transport Victoria
Q. I am a past student. Can my daughter attend MGSC if we don’t live locally?
A. Yes, your application would be for students living outside of the designated neighbourhood area (DNA). In this instance we follow the Departments Placement Policy The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.
Q. Does every applicant from outside the zone need to be interviewed?
Not necessarily. This may only be necessary if we have more applications than we have places.
Q. My daughter is interested in the Enhancement Program. Is there an additional application I need to fill in?
Yes. If you wish your daughter to be considered for the Enhancement program, then parents must complete the forms listed on the Enhancement Page of our website in addition to making your DNA/out-of-zone application to the primary school. Further information and forms can be found on our website : Enhancement Program
