  • TRANSITION – NEW STUDENTS ENROLLING THROUGHOUT THE YEAR

     

    • Students wishing to enrol at our school from a neighbouring school will be able to do so on the condition that the principal of the previous school is in agreement with the transfer, or if there has been a change of address that places the student closer to our school than the previous school, or if the student seeking enrolment is from a non-government school.

     

    • All enrolments will require the completion of the DET’s ‘Confidential Student Information Enrolment Form’, preferably through an interview process with Business Manager, with details entered immediately on CASES.

     

    • Our Principal will contact principals of previous schools of all students seeking transfers to discuss the circumstances of the transfer, to seek a transfer note or an immunisation certificate (if enrolling), and to discuss any academic or behavioural matters.

     

    • The principal has the authority to defer admission in order that enquiries of the previous school are carried out in the interests of the student.

     

    • The Principal will arrange an appointment for the new parents and student /s to meet their prospective classroom teacher.

     

    • Students will be allocated to classes according to a combination of class size and student need.

     

    • New children are paired with a ‘buddy’ to help them settle in and learn their way around the school.

     

    • Our students are well known for their friendly inviting approach to including new children into their class.

     

    • Parents receive an ‘Information Booklet’ about the school
