Pre-Primary Enrolments

In 2013, Pre-Primary became compulsory and for the first time all children are guaranteed places in their local schools.

Who Needs to Enrol

You need to enrol children in school for 2024 if they are:

  • Kindergarten: Born between 1st July 2019 – 30th June 2020
  • Pre-Primary: Born between 1st July 2018 – 30th June 2019

If your child is currently enrolled in Kindergarten you will need to re-enrol them for 2024 for their next year of schooling. Once children are attending Pre-Primary there is no further re-enrolling to do in future years.  Applications for kindergarten enrolment close on the Friday of week 1, term 3 each year.

Overseas Enrolments

If a child is not a permanent resident of Australia, we would need to see the following in addition to the documents listed above:

  • Child’s passport and travel documents
  • Evidence of date of entry into Australia
  • Visa (including three digit visa subclass number). Some visa subclasses allow for automatic enrolment, however some visas require a fee to be paid to the school.

School Hours

Children are asked NOT to arrive at school before 8.15am as adequate supervision cannot be provided.  If circumstances require that children arrive at school before 8.15am, parents are asked to write a note to the school.  Before 8.15am all children must stay within the quadrangle area outside the back of admin block.  The cabins are open from 8:35am and students are encouraged to spend some time getting ready for the school day with their class mates.

Children should be collected promptly at the end of the school day.  Staff often have meetings and training sessions to attend immediately after school.  If you are late please instruct your child to report to the Bridge and wait there till you arrive.  This saves panic when parents are late and ensure children are in a safe place until you arrive.
