2021 Enrolments

Posted on 25 May 2020

ACT Public School enrolments for the 2021 school year opened on Tuesday 28 April 2020. Refer to the Education Directorate's enrolment page for more details.

Families not residing in the Belconnen High School Priority Enrolment Area (PEA) should pay particular attention to the information under the Category B Schools on the Enrolling in Kindergarten to Year 12 page.

Applications close on Friday, 5 June 2020. All schools will send letters of offer in the week of 27 July 2020 for those applications received by this closing date.

With restrictions in place due to COVID-19, an Information Night will not be held this year. Instead, our school offers you our 2020 Prospectus and Virtual Tour

We asked our feeder primary school Year 6 students if they have any questions about what high school is like.  Here is a slide of our answers to their questions from our Leadership group and our Principal, Mrs Rebecca Pearce.

Principal message

Good morning everyone

This morning we would have been in our normal school assembly however due to the precautions that we need to take around the coronavirus or COVID-19, we are unable to do our assembly this morning.  So, with the help with the media class, I thought I’d talk to you in this different way.

In terms of the corona virus we’ve needed to cancel a number of our school events.

These include all school sport has now been cancelled until further notice.  A lot of our excursions have also been cancelled and a lot of school events have also been cancelled.

And they include our school assemblies and year assemblies;

  • Breakfast Club;
  • Athletics Carnival;
  • Parent/Teacher night;
  • And both the Year 8 and 9 camps for next term.

It’s very important that you all remember at this time that the school is still open, and our classes are still running as normal.

I have received no advice at this point that the school will close. During this time while you’re at school there are a few things I need you to be aware of and to do.  You will see around the school and in the toilets, this poster.  It reminds us what we need to do to help stop the spread of the virus.  Primarily, we all need to remember to wash our hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  Apparently, if you sing “Happy Birthday” twice, while you’re washing your hands, you’ve got about the right time.

You’ll have also heard the term ‘social distancing’.  This simply means that we need to remember to keep about a metre of space between us when we’re together.

Also, if you are feeling unwell it’s important to talk to your parents and stay home from school at this time.  With all that is going on, I don’t want you to forget just how important your learning still is.  All of the teachers met last night, and they were talking about ways in which we can help continue your learning if it’s necessary if you have to stay home from school. Firstly, they’ll be making sure this week that you’re up to date with your Google Classrooms and then we’ll send some more information home about how we’re going to do that.  You guys have been handling this situation incredibly maturely and calmly up until now, well done.  Keep it up.  Thank you.



Grace's Wonderful Achievement

Grace on Smokey at the Snowy Mountains Equestrian Interschools Competition

Congratulations to Grace F in Yr 8 who recently represented Belconnen High School at the Snowy Mountains Equestrian Interschools Competition held at Jindabyne. 

Grace competed in a number of different disciplines of equestrian sport including dressage, show jumping, showing and mounted games with Smokey.

Grace came home with a fourth in the combined training event.  This result comes from scores from a dressage test and a show jumping round.  She recorded sixth in another dressage test and seventh in the 80cms show jumping class from a competitive field of 64! Grace trained very hard in the lead up to this event and her hard work has paid off.

Well done Grace on an impressive and well deserved result!
