Prep 2025 Enrolment Timeline

The following timeline advises families of when and how to enrol their child into Prep at a Victorian government school.

 

To start primary school in 2025, your child will need to turn 5 years old by the 30th of April 2025. Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined by your permanent residential address. We may also accept enrolments from families outside the designated zone, if there are available places.

 

Our school manages enrolments using the Victorian Education Department Placement Policy.

 

What you need to do:

  • Use the Find my School website https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au/ to locate your designated neighbourhood school (local school). Your child’s local school is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

  • Attend the Information evening or contact our Administration office (03) 9459 0732 to book a school tour.

  • Application forms can be submitted to the school from Monday 15th April 2024. Forms can be collected from our school Administration office or you can download a PDF version here.

  • Submit your child’s enrolment application form by Friday 26th July 2024.

  • You will be notified of the outcome of your application between Monday 29th July and Friday 9th of August 2024.

  • If you can provide proof of residency, or you have a child already enrolled in the school, you are guaranteed a place at the school and you are able to request an enrolment form, rather than an application form.

  • Enrolled students will take part in transition sessions during Term 4, 2024.

  • Your child will start Prep on Thursday 30th January 2025.

 

Enrolment applications submitted after the 26th of July 2024 will be processed by our school as they are received, in accordance with the Department’s Placement Policy.
