Getting ready for school can be challening

Starting School Successfully

Our Preschool and Kindergarten Orientation programs provide opportunity for children to settle into a school routine, mix with and make friends with other children and engage in both structured and unstructured activities.

Birth Certificate & Immunisation

Admission to school is based on age. Your child must turn 5 before 31st July the year of enrolment. A Birth Certificate or passport, a NSW Health Department Immunisation Certificate and as well as proof of address must be produced before your child starts school.

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Check your address on School Finder to see if it is within our local intake area. Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol

If you live in our intake area and would like to apply to enrol at our school, start by submitting an online enrolment application. Online enrolment is currently only available for Australian or New Zealand citizens and permanent residents.

If you are not able to apply online or you prefer not to, download the paper application to enrol (PDF 768.4KB) form. Please complete the form in English. A translated application to enrol may help you do this.

Online enrolment can also be used for out-of-area enrolment. Please note that out-of-area enrolment procedures are subject to the department’s enrolment policy.

Health Examinations

A complete medical and dental check is one of the most important investments parents can make in a child’s academic future. The best preventative is a complete check-up before the child starts school. This would include speech, hearing and vision checks to detect any deficiencies before they develop into learning problems.

Spare Clothing

Parents are requested to pack a spare pair of underwear, socks and an old pair of shorts in their child’s bag in case of an accident at school.

Be Prepared

Letting go on the first day may be harder for you than your child, so don’t let your doubts dampen your child’s enthusiasm. Tension in your voice and manner will make your child fearful as you say goodbye. You should arrive on time and leave after a few cheerful words. Don’t linger as this can cause unnecessary distress or distract children from their group activity.

Encourage Positive Attitudes

You can help build up your child’s confidence in a number of ways. Willingness to try new ideas is an important skill for learning, so before school begins help your child enjoy using words, numbers and colours in games you play together. Encourage your child to do things for themselves, even if the first attempt is not very successful
