Enrolment

Important Information - Enrolment Year 1 - Year 6 (see below for Prep enrolment 2019):

All state schools have a designated catchment area. The equal distance point between neighbouring state schools determines each state school’s catchment area. All students who live within the catchment area are automatically eligible to enrol in their local school, however eligibility criteria exists to regulate 'out of catchment' enrolments in new schools.

Our enrolment management plan ensures that the school retains capacity to serve the community for which it is built. An EMP documents the eligibility criteria for students to enrol at the school who live outside of the school's catchment area.

Please check that your house is in our catchment area before proceeding with the enrolment process.

 
If you live outside the catchment, contact the school office for more information. You can apply for exemption by writing to the Principal or by completing an enrolment catchment exemption.pdf

3. Interview.

 
  • All new families are required to attend an informal 30 minute interview. We like to welcome new families personally and share information about our school. This is also a useful time for parents to share information about their children, which will assist us to meet their needs. 


 

Interviews are conducted on Thursday mornings between 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 noon.

     - Interviews for Prep 2019 will be available once you have enrolled your child.


 
3.    Start date. 

 
  • Your child's start date will be the Monday following your interview (at the earliest, or soon after) – this allows uniforms to be purchased and also time for furniture to be sourced, and teachers to prepare.


 
We look forward to our partnership and trust that this is the start of a long and happy relationship with Peregian Springs State School.
