Getting Ready for 2017

Selecting the right school

Selecting the right school for your child is an important decision. We believe a tour is the best method to decide which school is right for your child. We conduct our school tours during the school day and encourage you to bring your child with you. This provides the perfect opportunity for you and your child to see the real school in operation and for you to ask many questions as you walk through.

Eligibility

To start primary school your child must turn five years of age, or older, by 30 April of the year that they start school. We accept Prep enrolments from the start of each year, one year prior to your child’s start date. We encourage you to collect an Enrolment Pack early in the year to take home to complete and return with the supporting legal documentation as soon as possible.

To enable a smooth start for your child we ask that you submit the following documentation and legal information to complete the enrolment process:

Enrolment Form

Please ensure that all sections of the Enrolment Form are completed, signed and that the required legal documentation as outlined below is presented at the time of lodging your form. Please download the enrolement from below.

Medicare Immunisation Certificate

Contact Medicare to obtain your child’s School Entry Immunisation Certificate or Exemption Certificate. Unfortunately we cannot accept the Birth and Immunisation Record booklet.

Birth Certificate or Extract

We will photocopy this for our records.

Residency Status

If your child was not born in Australia we require a Certificate of Citizenship or Passport with Visa showing residency, which we will photocopy for our records.

Custody Documentation

If there are any custody restrictions applicable to your child we require the current court documents, which we will photocopy for our records. Please ensure you continue to provide us with copies of any custody documentation.

Prep Transition

Once you return the completed enrolment forms your child is enrolled for prep the following year. Your child is also encouraged to attend our Prep Transition Program. Our Transition Program runs over several sessions and assists your child to feel settled and confident to start prep at Narre Warren North Primary school the following year.
