Information Nights and Tours

Our Information Night for Kinder 2019 occurred in May - prior to the start of our very popular

Ready for School Program for pre-schoolers which began in June. 

Pending enquiries, another Information Night for Kinder 2019 may run in August for families who missed the May evening. This will be a shorter session to address any enquiries prior to Phase 2 of our Ready for School Program which will be held on Mon 24 September 9.15am for 9.30am start, ending at 11.00am. 

As numbers for 2019 are growing rapidly, parents wishing to register your child directly for Phase 2 of Ready for School may do so online (see link at left) but we MUST have received an Expression of Interest and/or Enrolment Form required to participate in the program. 

Watch this space for details of the next Information Night (pending enquiries).

For enquiries in the meantime-or a personal visit-please contact the school office 8.15am-3.15pm for an appointment. 

Please be advised to contact us as early as possible with regard to your enrolment enquiry.  

OTHER INFORMATION

Ready for School

  • Ready for School (now in its eighth successful year) is the popular & 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 & 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. Go to the separate tab at left to register when these dates are released. 
  • 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 
  • As our numbers are expanding, a voluntary donation is appreciated on registration into the Ready for School program. This is due to its high quality operational costs & the range of activities, staffing & 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 & keep in touch with you.
  • For 2019 local & non-local enquiries are welcome, but priority order of offer of a placement is given first to children residing in the local catchment area of the school (see map); then siblings of students already enrolled with us; and then case by case applications, supported by a documented claim for enrolment, pending vacancies.
  • Additional criteria may apply for non-local enrolments from 2019, pending the current rapid growth of our immediate local community & the availability of places.
  • It is advised you register an expression of interest early and await information to confirm a placement closer to the date of enrolment. 
  • At present, while the school is experiencing growth, rounds of offers for Kindergarten and across the school, are made according to the school's enrolment policy, the applicant's residential address, family details, documentation received and genuine level of commitment or claim to enrol, on a case by case basis, pending vacancies for a particular year.
  • We request that parents lodge both an Expression of Interest and Enrolment Form by email or in person.
