New Enrolment Information
We are happy to welcome enrolments at any time throughout the year. However the earlier we are informed about a transfer from another school the better, as we then have a chance to ensuring your child can experience a smooth transition into our school.
If you have transferred from another school please arrange a meeting with Cathy Jones the Principal informing them of the school your child has attended. We will then arrange for any reports to be forwarded to our school so that your child’s records can be maintained and all individual needs met. At this time we can also give you a tour of our school and introduce your child to his/ her new grade before they commence with us.
All parents need to complete enrolment forms and return them to the office to confirm the enrolment.
If your child will enrol as a foundation student please follow the process as outlined under Foundation Enrolment.
