Banyule Primary School Enrolment information
Starting school is an important milestone in the lives of children and families. Banyule Primary School provides a transition program to ensure all our students and their families get the very best start on this exciting journey. Prep enrolments are now open.
Do we have to live within the school zone?
All Melbourne schools have a local neighbourhood area. The Department of Education requires that schools allocate places to students residing within that area. Parents and the community can identify their closest school and all other schools across Victoria by using the Find My School website. https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au/
Students residing in the Banyule Primary School zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. Banyule Primary School may also accept enrolments from families outside the designated zone on a case by case basis. Please contact the school office, if you would like further information about whether your child is eligible.
How do I enrol my child?
You will need to complete an Enrolment Application form.
The Enrolment Application should be completed and returned to school with the following documents:
Birth Certificate or Child’s Passport

When do I have to submit the Enrolment Application form?
