In exceptional circumstances, compassionate and welfare grounds will be taken into account in cases of out-of-area enrolment applications.

Kindergarten enrolments

Children may be enrolled at the beginning of the school year in which they turn five years of age prior to August 1st. Documentary evidence of date of birth, immunisation and residential address is required.  The enrolment of the youngest of these children should be discussed with senior school staff.

Applying to enrol in primary school

If your child is currently enrolled in a NSW public school, contact us to discuss the enrolment procedures and obtain the necessary paperwork.

If your child is coming from a non-government school, contact us to make an appointment to discuss your child’s potential enrolment.

If your child has a temporary visa or visitor visa you will first need to apply to enrol by contacting the temporary residents program who will give you forms to bring to the school.

Enrolment appointments
For your appointment, if your child has not been previously enrolled in a NSW public school, you will need to bring these documents with you:

  • your child’s birth certificate or identity documents
  • proof of student’s address – originals of different documents such as your council rates notice or residential lease and electricity bill
  • Immunisation history statement based on the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR)
  • family law or other relevant court orders (if applicable).

If your child is not a permanent resident you will also need to provide:

  • passport or travel documents
  • current visa and previous visas (if applicable).

For children already enrolled in a NSW public school we only require:

  • proof of student’s address – originals of different documents such as your council rates notice or residential lease and electricity bill
  • family law or other relevant court orders (if applicable).

It’s important that you tell the principal if your child has any special circumstances, allergies, health or medical conditions, before your child starts school.

After your appointment with us, you may be asked to complete an application to enrol in a NSW public school form [English PDF 1.16MB] and return it to us. We will notify you of the result of your application. Please note that this form must be completed in English. Help is available for parents who do not read English. There are also translations of the enrolment application which may help you fill out the form in English.
