Enrolling at our school

There are two types of enrolment at Cairns SDE


     A.     School based students     A school based enrolment includes any student enrolled in an educational program provided under the:

  • Education (General Provisions) Act 2006 (Qld) at a State School.
  • Education (Accreditation of Non-State Schools) Act 2001 (Qld) at a non-State school.

Our acceptance of a school based enrolment allows students enrolled in another school to access one or more subjects at Cairns SDE.  These students are enrolled by their base school.

     B.     Home based students who enrol with Cairns SDE for their studies.​


Please complete and submit the relevant Enrolment and Remittance form to:  enrolments@cairnssde.eq.edu.au 

School based enrolments

Cairns School of Distance Education offers courses that are flexible, high quality and focused on student needs. Students who are currently enrolled full time in a state or non-state school can enrol in one or more subjects if:

  • the subject is not offered by their base school. 
  • the subject is offered by the base school, but the student is unable to access it due to a timetable clash or other special circumstance.

Resources will be supplied by Cairns School of Distance Education, however these are the responsibility of the base school to return when the student finalises.
