HOW TO ENROL
Simply call our friendly Administrations Team on 9318 1755 who will organise a time for you to meet with us. As part of the enrolment process we like to meet with all prospective families and undertake a school tour.
A school tour is an excellent way to get an inside look at the different cultures and programs of our school. The best time to attend is during school hours as you will see the students and teachers in action.
Tours usually run for 30 minutes which will give you a look into all year level classrooms, a chance to see the excellent facilities and ask questions along the way.
You can also visit our Foundation Teaching and Learning News page to learn more about what our Foundation students have been learning throughout the year.
TERM 3 SCHOOL TOURS:
Wednesday 19 July @ 9.30am
Wenesday 26 July @ 9.30am
Please call 9318 1755 to book a place on a tour.

FOUNDATION 2024 PARENT INFORMATION NIGHT
A parent information night is held in Term 4 each year for enrolled Foundation families to welcome you into the school community and provide you with important information to help make the transition to the school a pleasant and smooth experience.
FOUNDATION 2024 TRANSITION PROGRAM
Secondary to the Parent Information Night, we organise transition mornings for children to spend time at school getting to know their future school and teachers. This is an important feature of our enrolment process which gives your child an insight of what to expect in Foundation for the following year.
We encourage parents with a younger child who will attend school next year to enrol their child as early as possible.
If you have neighbours whose eldest child will start school next year, please inform them that enrolments are being accepted.
