Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

2021 Enrolments

With the introduction of a new Enrolment Procedures Policy in 2019, there has been a need to update some of our procedures and our school enrolment policy. Processes around proof of address have been updated and there may be a need to seek further information regarding proof of address from in area applicants.

The most significant update, for our school, is the introduction of an enrolment cap. This will impact all non local enrolment applications received from 2020. 

Before and After School Care

Before School, After School and Vacation Care is operated by the YMCA and is operated on the school premises.

Parents can drop their children off early in the morning for supervision by highly qualified trained YMCA staff from 7.00am and concludes at 9.00am. Teacher supervision of children in the playground begins from 8.30am. Supervision commences again after school by YMCA staff at 3.00pm amd lasts up until 6pm.

The children's interests are the foundations of our programs. We encourage children to be involved in interesting and exciting play experiences and explore their natural talents and potential. Children enjoy different team sports, dancing, indoor discussions and activities, such as art and craft. Homework completion is encouraged. 

We inspire all children in healthy lifestyles. We offer breakfast and afternoon tea in accordance with healthy eating guidelines. We also encourage children to participate in outdoor active play.
