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 (EOI)application and you will be placed on a waiting list in order of receipt. 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).

The opening date for Expressions of Interest will be towards the end of Term 1 in the year before entry is required.  For 2019 entry, applications are being accepted in person at the school office from March 28 2018 and by email from March 29 2018.

Prep Information Sessions

 

Our information and enrolment sessions are held in March and August of each year, in our Resource Centre.  

A session is held in the morning (9.15am) and is repeated in the evening (6.15 pm) to accommodate parents who find it difficult to make it during the day. All Welcome, no registration required.

The Information 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.

 
The dates for the 2018 Prep Information Sessions are:
       -   Thursday 15 March
        -  Tuesday 28 August.

Prep Orientation Day

 

Our Prep Orientation Day is an opportunity for parents and children (who have already been enrolled) 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 the day.  Information will also be available about our Prep Student Resource Scheme.

In 2018 our Prep Orientation Day is scheduled for 1 November (9:15am).
