To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.
Proof of age will be required for sighting for all children being enrolled for the first time. In the absence of a birth certificate, acceptable alternatives include passport or visa.
Ensure regular attendance as each day’s work is built upon the previous day’s work. However, a child when ill, does not do his/her best work and should be kept at home to receive the care that will help him/her recover as quickly as possible.
The Education Act requires that a reason be given if children have been absent from, or late for school. We request that absences be reported to the office by 9.00am on the day of absence.
The staff appreciate receiving word about children who may have been ill or who have had something happen to them, as their welfare is our utmost concern.
Many children are embarrassed by arriving late to their class, so it is in their own interest to be at school by 8.45 am at the latest. The class attendance rolls are taken promptly at the start of the school day. Incidents of students arriving late without explanation are recorded.
Please complete the Enrolment Application, Enrolment Agreement, Media Consent Form, and Prep Information Form & Student Resource Scheme (for future prep students only) and attach a copy of proof of residence. The office will also need to sight a copy of your child's original birth certificate upon receiving the completed enrolment form. All details requested are needed to give the teaching team as complete a picture of each child as possible.
First day procedures
Children who have been pre-enrolled should be taken directly to the appropriate classrooms. The preps and year 1s do not have a short school day in their first week. They commence at the same time as the rest of the school (8.50am) and finish at 3.00pm. All other new enrolments will be processed at the administration building.
Transfers / admission from another school
Parents whose children are transferring to this school from another Queensland state primary school, require a certificate of transfer before leaving that school. This will be issued to the child on their last day.
Families of students leaving the school should advise the admin staff as early as possible. A verbal message via the child is not sufficient.
