Children can start their education in Kindergarten, however compulsory schooling starts the following year in Pre-primary.
Who needs to enrol?
You need to apply to enrol your children in school for 2022 if they are:
- starting Kindergarten – 4 years old by 30 June 2022
- starting Pre-primary, the first year of compulsory school – 5 years old by 30 June 2022
- starting Year 7, the first year of secondary school
- changing schools.
You can find out what year your children need to start school with our school-age calculator at the Department of Educations Website.
All children of compulsory school age must be enrolled in school and attend every day – this is the law. All children must attend school up until they are 16 years old. Sixteen and 17 year olds must be enrolled in school or a training organisation, be employed or be in a combination of school/training/employment.
Places in Kindergarten may be limited, so we encourage you to apply now.
