Prep (for the following school year)

To enrol in Prep your child needs to turn five by June 30 of the year in which they start.  You can check when your child is eligible for Prep using the Queensland Government’s Prep Ready Reckoner. 

 

Prep is a full time program.  Children attend school Monday to Friday  8.50am - 3.00 pm.

 

If you wish to enrol your child in Prep for the current year then please navigate back  to  "Enrolling at our school" (see tab at left).

 

The following information pertains to enrolments for the next school year.   Please note that we are an enrolment-managed school​ and may not necessarily be able to accept students from out of catchment​.

 

For those in-catchment, we encourage you to send in your enrolment application as early as possible (once school starts) in the year prior to your child starting.  We do not accept enrolments more than a year ahead. 

 

If out-of-catchment we ask that you first submit an expression of interest and you will be placed on a waiting list in order of receipt. The opening date for expressions of interest will be  towards the end of Term 1 in the year  before entry is required .  For 2018 entry the date is March 29 2017. If vacancies exist towards the end of that year, then places will be offered to those on the waiting list (strictly in order of receipt). It is therefore imperative to submit your Expression of Interest as soon as possible  to the opening date.  

Prep Information Sessions

 
 

Our information and enrolment sessions are held in March and August of each year.   Sessions are held in the mornings and at least one evening session will be scheduled (usually in August) to accommodate those parents who find it difficult to make it during the day. These sessions are an opportunity for parents and carers to learn about our school and how our Prep teachers make the first year of school so special.


In 2017 our Prep Information sessions are scheduled for  9 March  and 8 August.  On both days there will a morning session at 9.15am, as well as an evening session at  6.15pm for working parents.  

 

Prep Orientation Day

 

Our Prep Orientation Day is an opportunity for parents and children to visit the school and experience our Prep classrooms.  This helps to ensure a smooth start to the new year.  Uniforms can also be bought on this day.  Information will also be available about our Student Resource Scheme for Prep.

In 2017 our Prep Orientation is scheduled for 1 November 9.15am.
