The local-intake area maps are based on a written description of the local-intake area (LIA) for the school as published in the WA Government Gazette. Although the map closely represents the LIA description, for some houses near the boundary (especially on street corners), it may be necessary to refer to the written description. The street address of a residence is used to determine whether that dwelling is inside a particular LIA. While local-intake areas for most schools do not change from year to year, changes may be made to local-intake areas as required. Such changes are published in the WA Government Gazette and subsequently the local-intake area map will be updated.
