It is compulsory for children to attend school from the age of 6 years. Children who reach the age of five years, on or before April 30, may commence school in February of that year, however it is advisable to discuss with the Kindergarten teacher the ‘readiness’ of your child to begin school, especially if your child’s birthday falls near April 30.
The following procedures are required when enrolling your child:
- Complete an Enrolment Form
- Provide proof of your child’s full legal name and age (birth certificate or passport)
- Provide Certificate of Immunisation (either from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register [Phone: 1800 653 809] or from Medicare)
