"Be the best you can be ..."


Due to rapid growth the school has adopted an Enrolment scheme. Entry into the school is restricted.

The school tries to keep a record of pre-school children in the district and your help in keeping this up to date would be appreciated.

When your child is due to start school, please come to the office and fill in an enrolment form, and you will then be advised about the first day of school. Our enrolment form is also available online and can be accessed here.

Birth certificates and immunisation records must be provided for all children when they first start school. Four year olds are invited to visit the New Entrant class, to familiarise them with the classroom routines. Please enquire at the office for more details.
