Preparing your child for school

During our Introduction Evening for 2021 Enrolments, experienced foundation teachers will provide valuable information for parents and care givers in the transition from a Pre School setting to Primary School. The readiness of children starting school and what parents can do to best assist their child with their transition will be the focus of the night.

Story Night 

Teachers will share some of their favourite books in the library.

Kinder School Transition

Our Specialist Teachers will visit local Kindergartens for a session to introduce Music, Art and Physical Education to the children in their familiar learning environment. Children will also get the opportunity to visit the specialists teachers at Bayswater North Primary School as a follow up to our Kinder School Transition.

School Familiarisation Visits

School Transition, where all Kindergarten/ Day Care Centre children will be invited to spend an afternoon session with the Foundation Teachers from 2:45 – 3:30pm.

Children will be invited to attend a morning session in the Foundation classroom with this year’s students. The purpose of this visit is to familiarise themselves with the classroom and school environment.

Kinder and Child Care children will also be invited to enjoy having lunch at school in the Junior Courtyard at 1:30 pm followed by story time in the Library at 2:15 pm.

How to enrol you child:

  • Fill out Confidential Student Enrolment Form for 2021 (available from the school office or download from the link above)
  • Provide proof of your child’s age (birth certificate, Health Centre book or other documentation)
  • Ensure you have a School Entry Immunisation Certificate from the Council or you can call  the Immunisation Register on  1800 653 809.

If you require details of immunisation programs please contact your local Council.

At enrolment, please inform the school confidentially of any special needs, allergies, disabilities or impairments which may effect your child’s education so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

We would appreciate your child’s enrolment as soon as possible to enable us to plan with certainty for our 2021 program.

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 Mrs 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.
