ENROLMENT FOR 2017 PREPARATORY YEAR
Enrolment processes for Prep 2017 have commenced. As the school has an “Enrolment Management Plan” (EMP), children who reside in the official Education Queensland designated catchment area or who have a sibling currently attending the school must be provided with placements. It is most important for parents and caregivers who meet these requirements to inform the school immediately if they have a child who will be attending Prep in 2017.

Once we are confident that Prep aged children for 2017 who reside in our enrolment catchment area or who are siblings of children who are currently enrolled at the school have been allocated placements, we can offer placements for children who do not live in the designated catchment area.  Once these offers are made and enrolments confirmed the school will be holding a number of placements in Prep for 2017 for families who move into the area throughout 2017. Our preparatory enrolments for 2017 must not exceed 125.

Please make contact with the school if you reside in the catchment area and you have a child who will  commence Prep in 2017. This request to make contact with the school is equally important if you have a child enrolled in the school and he or she has a sibling commencing Prep in 2017.
