Parents seeking to enroll students with BWSODE will be directed to one of several procedures that they need to follow depending on the category of enrolment.

To discuss the category and procedure that best suit your student, please contact the Principal or Assistant Principal at the Walgett Centre on 02 6828 1374 or the Assistant Principal at the Bourke Centre on 02 6872 2424.

Distance Education is available to students who:

  • are geographically isolated
  • have a medical condition that prevents them attending mainstream
  • are on extended travels for 10 weeks or more
  • are travelling overseas
  • have been recommended for distance education through their local School Education Area Office.

Our school caters for students who are residents of New South Wales.

How do I go about enrolling? The enrolment process for distance education is similar to enrolment into any NSW Public School. Along with enrolment forms, some categories may also require additional documentation and procedures. See the enrolment category links provided.
