PREP 2022 ENROLMENTS
Enrolments are not complete without proof of birth - birth certificate or passport - visa documents included if applicable, and a certificate of completed immunisation from the Australian Immunisation Register.
New amendements to the No Jab, No Play legislation have tightened requirements for enrolment and impact acceptable documentation for school entry immunisation requirements: As of 28 February 2018, an Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register will be the only form of documentation accepted as proof of a child's immunisation status.
Documents produced by GPs or other immunisation providers will no longer be sufficient as a form of evidence.
Parents must provide an immunisation status certificate, from the Australian Immunisation Register, to the school regardless of whether the child is or is not immunised.

ENROLMENT FORM 2022
If your child lives in two households please also fill out the Alternative Family Form
Additional Family Form
Compass is a web-based system that is accessible on any modern web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) or by using the Compass iOS or Android apps. Search for ‘Compass School Manager’ in the store. Every family receives a separate login to Compass which will be provided to you by our school.
Using Compass allows parents to access up-to-date and meaningful information about our school and your child’s progress.
Compass includes many different features, including the ability to:
• Monitor your child’s attendance, and enter an explanation for absence or lateness
• Communicate with your child’s teachers, and update your family contact details
• View your child’s timetable and the school calendar
• Monitor your child’s homework and assessment tasks
• Download and view your child’s progress and semester reports
• Book parent-teacher conferences
• Pay and provide consent for events and school fees
As we have over 420 families at our school we ask that if you have a concern about your child that you contact the teacher via a note in the communication folder or ring to make an appointment. You can usually catch the teacher outside the classroom straight after school.
We ask that you ring the Principal, Katrina Mildner or Assistant Principal, Sue Pattison to discuss any issue which cannot be addressed by the classroom teacher. Please do not write lengthy emails. We would rather talk to you face to face or via the phone. Most issues can be addressed quickly.
PARENT CLASS REPRESENTATIVES
Another form of communication is through our Parent Class Representatives. This is usually in the form of email to parents in your child’s class.
Role of a Class Representative:-enhance the communication between school and families-welcome new parents-organize class social activities e.g. coffee morning or drinks nights to assist parents to get to know each other -meet with the teacher to discuss class needs and co-ordinate parent helpers for class events-let parents know when we need volunteers for school activities.
It is not an onerous task and we welcome your involvement.
The school website is an important source of information. You will be able to plan around the dates on the calendar, read policies and find out what your child will be involved in during the term. We are endeavouring to move away from paper to the electronic media.
The homepage has upcoming events and the calendar is full of details about curriculum, excursions and events for students and families. You are able to download permission forms and access the fortnightly newsletter in a click! Each term the student year levels and specialists pages are updated with information about what’s ahead in the term, recommended educational websites and excursion and event calendars.
HINT: Add the website as your homepage when you open your internet browser!
