Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.
Local enrolment area
Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. The School Finder shows our local enrolment area. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.
How to enrol
Contact us when you’re ready to enrol your child in our school. You may need to attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.
Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.
If your address falls within these boundaries, Lewisham Public School is your local Kindergarten to Year 6 school. If your address falls outside these boundaries, you are welcome to apply for consideration as a non-local enrolment.
Our program of information nights for 2019 begins in March 2018. Watch this space for dates and times. Please contact us on 02 9569 4536 for enquiries.
Ready For School program.
The Ready for School program (now in its sixth successful year) is the popular and innovative program for pre-schoolers that begins each year in June. It is a school-based initiative which is voluntary but highly recommended because of its proven success for kids and families as they transition to school.
For it to be most effective for your child, his or her participation for the full program of visits is highly recommended in the year before Kindergarten.
School enrolment forms may be lodged at any time during the year prior to starting school, but are requested on registration into the Ready for School program so that the school can plan ahead for anticipated enrolments and staffing.
As our numbers have expanded, a voluntary donation is appreciated on registration into the Ready for School program. This is due to its high quality operational costs and the range of activities, staffing and personalised resources customised for each child. Families experiencing financial difficulties are supported in the program. Please discuss your needs on registration.
Expression of interest to enrol
If you are considering enrolment with us, you may contact us as soon as you wish but it is recommended at least one year prior to the year of intended enrolment. This allows us to plan ahead, place you on our database as a local or non-local enquiry and keep in touch with you.
