Parents of Prep students should enrol their child the year before they commence school. This enables him/her to participate in activities designed to help him/her familiarise themselves with school life e.g. Prep Transition Program and Prep Orientation Day. These days are usually in October and November of the year preceding school commencement


Age For Enrolment
A child is admitted to school at the beginning of a year if his/her fifth birthday falls on or before the 30th April of that year.

When enrolling your child, evidence of date of birth and a certificate of immunisation is required.

If your child was born overseas the school also requires a copy of their passport and visa when submitting an enrolment form.


You can obtain a certificate of immunisation from:

  • The Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR)
