When can my child attend Prep?
Prep is available to all children who have their fifth birthday from 1 July in the year preceding prep, to the 30 June during their Prep year. View the department's Prep Ready Reckoner to determine when your child can commence their preparatory year.
All other enrolments are processed on an individual basis and with consideration for our Enrolment management plan (PDF, 199KB).
Parents/carers are asked to complete a detailed enrolment form, obtained from the office or this website. Upon application, a birth certificate or passport will need to be sighted before a student is able to commence. Information received on this enrolment form enables us to maintain full information of all those aspects necessary for the protection and well-being of the child. Early notification of any change of address, phone number, emergency contact or custody/access arrangements etc. is essential.
All enrolling Prep students are required to participate in a Prep interview to help ascertain their readiness for the Prep year. Please ask the office for available interview dates.
