Apply online

Our new online enrolment process makes it easier and faster to enrol your child at your local school.

To apply online, you must:

  • be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident
  • live in the local enrolment area of this school.

Apply for enrolment online.

If you are not eligible to use the online form or prefer not to, you can download an application to enrol (PDF 768.4KB).

The application form must be completed in English. However, a translated application to enrol may help you to fill out the form in English.


Enrolments for Kindergarten are taken the year before the child starts school. Please ensure that you complete the Enrolment form. Kindergarten children must be five years old by the 31st July in order to be enrolled. You will need to provide the following documentation prior to your child starting school.

  • Birth certificate or passport
  • Complete Immunisation certificate (not the blue book)
  • The following 100-point residential address check is used to determine the student’s entitlement to enrol at the school.

Students arriving from overseas will need to bring their passports and visas when enrolling at school and special conditions may exist for some visa holders.

Priority is given to children who live within the school boundary and siblings. Out of area applications for enrolment are only offered if a vacancy exists.
