Due to the high enrol­ment num­bers and lim­it­ed class­room spaces, pri­or­i­ty is giv­en to fam­i­lies who live in our pri­or­i­ty enrol­ment zone or already have a sib­ling at the school. There must be con­fir­ma­tion of a cur­rent res­i­den­tial address in the form of a util­i­ties bill or lease agree­ment. Fam­i­lies enrolling their child are required to meet with the prin­ci­pal and com­plete an enrol­ment form online. The school requires a min­i­mum of 24 hours to process each enrol­ment, so new stu­dents attend school one or two days after enrolling. The online enrol­ment pro­ce­dure is detailed on the Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion web­site https://enrol.ntschools.net/. Pri­or­i­ty enrol­ment infor­ma­tion for Ross Park Pri­ma­ry and Rona Glynn Preschool is outlined in our Family Handbook. Priority enrolment zones are outlined here:  Alice Springs Primary Schools Priority Enrolment Maps – Google My Maps

The NT Government issues Back to School vouchers valued at $200.00 per student. At Ross Park, this can be used for the purchase of school uniforms, as well as other school essentials. New shirts were introduced in 2023 with the modernised logo, older designs can still be worn and are sold at a reduced cost. Donations of second-hand uniforms are welcome. Please note that parents may be contacted to review the attire of students if deemed to be inappropriate for school.



It is a requirement of the school that children wear sun safe hats at all times when they are outdoors. This includes coming to and from school. Ross Park hats are available from the front office, or any bucket hat can be worn. Children without approved hats will be confined to undercover areas during play sessions. Caps do not meet the sun safe guidelines. Ross Park School follows the recommendations of the Northern Territory Cancer Council.

School Council

The School Council is comprised of an elected body of eleven parents and five teachers, the School Principal (ex officio), School Business Manager, Council Secretary and up to two invited members. The Council supports and promotes the school in accordance with its philosophy and constitution. The School Council contributes to the management of school finances and school property, and supports strategic planning and school direction, as well as involving parents in school events wherever possible. The Council AGM is held in March. Parents meet to elect approximately half their Council members for a two-year term. Active parent participation is essential to the development of the school. The Council Chairperson is elected from the parent councillors for a term of two years. Subcommittees operate within Council on a needs basis and report to Council. If you are interested and can help in any of the subcommittees, it is not necessary to be a member of School Council to join a subcommittee. During school terms, the Council meets on the third Monday of each month at 5:00 pm in the staffroom. Virtual access is also available via an email link invitation. All parents are welcome to attend Council meetings.
