For any enrolment we strongly recommend a visit.
For foundation enrolment your child should be turning five before May in the year of enrolment. There is an enrolment form available from from our office and it will be necessary to photocopy your child’s immunisation record and sight a health care card if claiming financial hardship. School fees are discussed below.
Our transition process for local foundation students begins in Term 4 of the previous year. Parents will be contacted about the state-wide transition day and the more informal transition days the school hosts. The P&F provides new uniforms for purchase, and secondhand uniforms for free (depending on availability).
For older students coming in from outside the local area, or from the Catholic or independent system enrolment is relatively straightforward. Visit the school, determine if we are a good fit for you, submit an enrolment form, organise a uniform and start school.
If the student is from a school in and around Shepparton there are special protocols in place.
Enrolment from other government schools around Sheppaton.
