Registration of interest for enrolment

In South Australia, public primary schools have one intake date, this means:

  • If your child turns five years before 1 May they can start primary school the first day of term 1 of that year.
  • If you child turns five on or after 1 May they can start primary school the first day of term 1 of the following year.

The one intake date brings South Australia into line with other states and means every child has four terms of pre-schooling and reception before starting the rest of their schooling.

Your child must be at school by their sixth birthday – this is the compulsory school starting age.

Reception Enrolments 2023

The process of enrolment begins in Term 2 of the preceding year, with families registering interest using the Reception Registration of Interest form. By 30 June 2022, the forms must be lodged with the school via email to erica.staude25@schools.sa.edu.au or the school’s front office.

For out of zone families, distance from our school will be used to prioritise placements from the waiting list compiled from registrations of interest forms received prior to 01 July.2022. This list will be used to meet capacity and will be part of our Round 2 communications.

School’s waiting lists are current for 12 months only. Enrolment applications for 2024 will be available from Term 1 2023.
Round 1 offers are made to families in our enrolment zone by late August.

Round 2 offers or families outside of our enrolment zone are made in late September based on availability.
