Ah, I wasn't sure when the birthday before the end of June rule came into effect, I thought it had now caught up to year 10, but it must be year 9. Your daughter wouldn't come under the end of June rule, also spmindia eldest daughter won't, but her youngest will.

I think it's current year 8s - my daughter's year 9 and the new rules don't affect her year - the high schools have a big planning problem as they have a very big Year 8 and small year 7 because of the change.

Your right. Found this info. It was implemented in 2001, currently effecting year 8, which is half as big as a normal year group, it is known as the 'half cohort'. So any child born before 1996 it doesn't make any difference when in the year they were born. All very confusing, but I suppose it had to be done, children as young as just turning 3 were starting Kindy.
