STARTING RECEPTION

Starting school is an exciting time for families and children as our young people take early steps on their journey through education and
on to the rest of their lives.
 

South Australia now has the same first day of school for all children. This means that every  child is guaranteed four terms of Reception before they continue with the rest of their Primary Schooling years .It also means a more stable environment for children throughout the year with less changes to classes.  

The current start date is the first day of Term 1 and the current minimum age for beginning school is     4 years and 8 months.

If your child turns 5 before 1 May, they will begin school on the first day of Term 1 in that year.
 
 - 
If your child turns 5 on or after 1 May, they will begin school on the first day of Term 1 the following year.
 
 

 

Please view Starting Reception 2021 for the Reception Enrolment
timeline and follow the instructions on the Enrolments page.
 
'Registration of Interest' forms for Reception enrolments 
must be completed and received by the school
no later than Friday, Week 5 of Term 3
 
 
            
 
 
TRANSITION VISITS
 
New Reception students will receive an invitation to attend
three transition visits in Term 4.
 
Attending transition visits is a chance for students to experience 'school life', meet staff, become familiar with the environment and make some new friends!
