Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. The School Finder shows our local enrolment area. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol 

When you’re ready to enrol your child in our school, you’ll attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.

For more information, visit primary school enrolment or contact us to discuss your child’s enrolment.

The application form must be completed in English. However, a translated application to enrol may help you to fill out the form in English.

Preschool enrolment

When to enrol in Preschool

Children are eligible to enrol in NSW public preschools if they turn four on or before 31 July of that year. Applications for next year are taken from Term 2 of the current school year.

The preschool follows eligibility criteria set out in the department's preschool enrolment procedures. First priority is given to children who live within the school's local area.  If the number of applicants exceeds the places available, the school's placement panel will consider each application and make recommendations for placement according to the department's eligibility criteria and priority.  Priority is given to children from disadvantaged backgrounds who are unable to access other children's services and, in particular, those families who experience financial hardship and children of Aboriginal descent.

Enrolment appointments

Please contact us to make an appointment to discuss your child's potential enrolment.  You will be asked to bring these documents with you to the appointment:

  • your child's birth certificate or identity documents
  • proof of your child's address - originals of different documents such as your council rates notice or residential lease and electricity bill
  • immunisation history statement
  • low income health care card (if applicable)
  • family law or relevant court orders (if applicable).

If your child has special circumstances, allergies, health or medical conditions, it's important that you tell the principal about these before your child starts preschool.

Non-local enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.

We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.
