Enrolling Your Child

On or around your child's 4th birthday, it is important to make a appointment with the principal to pre-enrol your child and have a look around our school.  Prior to your child's 5th birthday you will receive a notice stating which days your child's pre-visits will occur.

Pre-school visits - four consecutive visits on Friday mornings.

The purpose of pre-school visits are:

  • To meet fellow pupils and prospective friends, to develop confidence in the class, and affinity and identity with the school.
  • To introduce children and their parents or caregivers to their teacher and syndicate leader.
  • To become familiar with the layout and facilities at school.
  • To experience some school activities, and to become familiar with class and school routines.
  • To provide information needed to settle into school life quickly and smoothly.
  • As we generally retain a normal programme for the students it is requested that you do not bring other pre-schoolers on these visits.
