Enrolments

Primary school consists of Prep to Year 6. Prep is the first year of schooling in Queensland. It is a full-time, school-based program and follows the Australian Curriculum. From 2017, it is compulsory for all Queensland children to undertake Prep prior to commencing Year 1.

 
The only exceptions to compulsory participation in Prep are where:
  • a child has undertaken education in another jurisdiction that is equivalent to Prep;
  • a child was registered for home education in the year prior to enrolment in a state or non-state school; or
  • the principal is satisfied the child is ready to be enrolled in Year 1 taking into account the child's attributes.
To enrol in Prep, children must be aged five years by 30 June in the year of proposed attendance. You can enrol your child in Prep by contacting the school directly, and you must provide proof of your child's date of birth (e.g. birth certificate). Early or delayed entry to Prep are options which may be considered in specific circumstances and where it is in a child's best educational interest. These options should be discussed with the principal.
