Enrolment

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.

For more information, visit primary school enrolment.

Download an application to enrol (PDF 5.9MB).

The application form must be completed in English. However, a translated application to enrol may help you to fill out the form in English.

Non-local enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.

We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.

Temporary visas and international students

For information about eligibility and forms to complete, visit the Temporary Residents Program.

Distance education

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.

For more information about educational opportunities in rural areas, visit Rural and distance education.

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.
