Enrolments procedure:

Foundation enrolment for siblings open in May - Parents are required to contact the school office for an interview time. Parents and siblings have opportunity to tour the school with two school student leaders after the interview. Priority is given to students who already have an enrolled sibling. 

Enrolments for foundation open at the end of May / early June. Please contact the office to arrange your interview time. The interview is held to discuss any social, emotional or academic needs. It involves parents and student for 10 - 15 minutes. The school will contact families by phone at the end of July or early August to notify student placements. 

Orientation for foundation students is held in term 4. The school will have an information morning for parents/guardians of any foundation students to outline school procedures. Prospective foundation students will then have 3 orientation mornings where they will meet their foundation teachers and complete some small observational activities. Information for these meetings are sent home to families in term 4.
