Enrolment Details and Form
Children may be enrolled prior to attending the first day and enrolment forms may be obtained from the school office. Whenever possible the Principal will meet with prospective parents and students. Students enrolled prior to starting will have an opportunity to visit their prospective classroom and meet their future teacher. New entrant children will be invited to have 2 half days in the new entrant room prior to commencing school to assist with transitioning to school (the new entrant teacher - will contact parents to organise these visits). When enrolling a student, parents will require a birth certificate or passport for the child and immunisation certificate/record.
Please note that our enrolment zone has changed from 1 January 2019. View enrolment scheme here.
Out of Zone
If you are living outside of the school’s zone, it is only possible to secure a place at the school if there is a vacancy. The reason for setting up the enrolment zone is to ensure that our class sizes do not become too large. View enrolment scheme here.
Children living outside of the zone, including those with siblings at school, may obtain a place through a ballot system. You must fill out the form and return it to the school as soon as possible. We will write to you after the ballot takes place to let you know whether we can offer a position at the school or not.
