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.

Children may enter Kindergarten at the beginning of the school year if they turn five before 31 July of that year. Application for Enrolment forms are available from the school office and must be returned completed and accompanied by the following documentary support:

  • Proof of Age (Birth Certificate or valid Passport)
  • Immunisation Certificate (available from your doctor)
  • Proof of residence (bank statement, electricity or other account addressed to your home)
  • In the case of migrating families – Proof of Australian Citizenship or Visa details as per Passport

Prior to the end of the year, prospective Kindergarten students are invited to attend a series of Information and Orientation mornings when they can meet their teacher, become familiar with their classroom as well as meet and spend some time with their “buddy”. The “Buddy” system is part of the Peer Support Program, where an older student is paired with a Kindergarten student as a special friend to offer help and support during the Kinder student’s first year of school.

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

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.
