Starting Kindergarten in 2021

It is time for parents to begin the process of preparing pre-school children for their journey through to primary school. Please fill out a Kindergarten 2021 Expression of Interest Form

Starting school

Your child can start Kindergarten at the beginning of the school year if they turn five on, or before, 31 July of that year. By law, all children must be enrolled by their sixth birthday. When to start school is an individual decision. You may want to discuss this with us or with your child's preschool teacher, carer or doctor.

Because students start new work in their new class at the beginning of the school year, it would be an advantage for your child both socially and educationally, to start school as soon as possible in the new year.

We are pleased to advise all current and prospective parents that we are now accepting enrolments for children who will commence Kindergarten in 2021. Please fill out a Kindergarten 2021 Kindergarten Enrolment Expression of Interest Form as the first step of the Kindergarten Enrolment process. Please contact our school office staff for further details of the enrolment process and to obtain a Kindergarten Enrolment Pack.

What can I do to help the transition?
