Starting School

Your child can start Kindergarten at the beginning of the school year if they turn five on or before 31 July in that year. By law, all children must be enrolled in school by their sixth birthday.

As students start new work in their new class at the beginning of the school year, it would be an advantage for your child both socially and educationally, to start school as soon as possible in the new year.
 

Enrolment Requirements

You will need to complete an NSW Government School Enrolment Form .as well as bringing the following documents to either of the two school offices between the hours of 9:30am - 2:30pm:

  • 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 inform us if your child has any special circumstances, allergies, health or medical conditions, before your child starts school.

 

Temporary Residents Program
If your child has a temporary visa or visitor visa you will first need to apply to enrol by contacting the Temporary Residents Program  or call  +61 1300 300 229.  The Temporary Residents Program will give you forms to bring to our school.


Out-of-Area Enrolment

If you live outside our catchment area you can submit an 'Out-of-Area' enrolment.  As well as completing the NSW Government School Enrolment Form, submitting proof documents (as listed above), we also ask you to attach a letter outlining your reasons for wanting to send your child to Warrawee PS and not your local school.  All out-of-area enrolments are reviewed in the second half of Term 3 by the Principal and the enrolment committee, if your application is successful you will then be contacted by one of the committee members. 

It's also a good idea to submit an enrolment to your local school, just in case your out-of-area enrolment isn't successful.

 

If you have any other questions please call the Primary Office on 9144 2637 or the Infants Office on
9144 5952, Monday to Friday from 8:30am until 3:30pm.
