If you are thinking of enrolling your child, we encourage visits to our school and a chat with our office staff, who will provide you with an enrolment pack. Feel free to make an appointment either with our principal Janet Moyle, if you would like to talk about your child and / or have a guided walk around the school with one of the management team or our senior students.
If your child is starting school, you may enroll them well in advance of their 5th birthday. This helps our school plan ahead and for new entrants to enjoy the opportunity of pre-entry school visits in our Head Start class.
Please be aware that in order to preserve the current optimum size of our school, we operate an enrolment scheme. Students living inside our school zone have automatic entitlement to enrolment. If you are not in zone, check out our Out of Zone enrolment information for more detail.

After school care is provided in the hall each day by SKIDS (Safe Kids in Daily Supervision). An information pack and enrolment form is available from the school office or see below to download a copy.
Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone.
The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received. Please contact us for current out of zone enrolment places available.
