Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Check your address on School Finder to see if it is within our local intake area. Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol

Apply online. If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident you are eligible to complete the online enrolment application. You will then need to finalise the application at the school.

If you are not eligible or prefer not to enrol online, use the application to enrol (PDF 768.4KB) form. Please complete the form in English. A translated application to enrol may help you do this.

Temporary visas and international students

The Temporary Residents Program has information about eligibility and the forms to complete an application.

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.
