Enrolments and Tours

STARTING SCHOOL
AT SPENSLEY STREET

 

CAN MY CHILD ATTEND SPENSLEY STREET?

We enrol approximately 50 Prep students each year. Children who live in the immediate vicinity (roughly 1km from the school) are guaranteed entry, as are siblings of students already enrolled at the school.


There are usually some places for students outside these groups. However, it is difficult to predict these numbers from year to year. There are no additional places available for 2020.

If you live within the school's zone and you have a child starting school in 2020, please contact the school as soon as possible as enrolments have now closed. 

 

PREP TOURS

Families wishing to enquire about enrolments for the following year are encouraged to visit the school between April and June each year. 


The next tour details will be available in early 2020.

The next school Open Day is Wednesday 6 May, 2020.

Our Prep Transition program will be held in late November.


Next year's Prep children are invited to attend for four days from 9.30-10.30am.


Parents and carers learn about school programs and children are involved in learning experiences - story readings, songs, simple games and craft activities - in each one of our four Areas.

A Family Information session will also be held in November. Childcare will be offered at the school.

For the first six weeks of Term 1, Preps do not come to school on Wednesdays.

 

FAMILY INFORMATION BOOK

Information about the school and its programs, including details about starting school, is available in the Family Information Book. This is given to parents and carers at the Prep Transition Program and is also available to download. Here is all the latest information for being at school in 2019.

 

KIDSMATTER RESOURCES FOR STARTING SCHOOL

KidsMatter is an Australian mental health and well-being initiative set in primary schools and early childhood education and care services (like preschools, kindergartens and day care centres). It’s a framework that helps these places take care of children's mental health needs by:

  • creating positive school and early childhood communities

  • teaching children skills for good social and emotional development

  • working together with families

  • recognising and getting help for children with mental health problems.
