We are now taking enrolments for next year’s Foundation classes. Please contact the office to collect your enrolment form or download from link on Menu. Tours are available at 9:30am on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please contact the office and we can book you in. We are very happy to show you our school and the opportunities and programs we offer your child. Children who have a brother or sister attending the school are guaranteed a place in Foundation.
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.
Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.
Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.

New amendments to the No Jab, No Play legislation have implications for new enrolments in schools. The new amendments to the No Jab, No Play legislation have tightened requirements for enrolment in early childhood services and impact acceptable documentation for school entry immunisation requirements:
As of 28 February 2018, an Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register will be the only form of documentation accepted as proof of a child’s immunisation status.
Documents produced by GPs or other immunisation providers will no longer be sufficient as a form of evidence.
