Our kindergarten

Applying to enrol in kindergarten

Children attending our preschool will be sent pre-filled Kindergarten enrolment forms in Term 3.  If your child will be continuing on to Kindergarten with us, please make any amendments, sign the form and return it to the office as soon as possible.

If your child is not currently in our preschool, please complete an online enrolmnent form.  You will need to bring your child's original birth certificate or passport to the school.  All other documents can be submitted online.

Apply online

Our new online enrolment process makes it easier and faster to enrol your child at your local school.

To apply online, you must:

  • be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident
  • live in the local enrolment area of this school.

Apply for enrolment online

If you are not eligible to use the online form or prefer not to, you can download a fillable application to enrol (PDF 579KB).

The application form must be completed in English. However, a translated application to enrol may help you to fill out the form in English.

Our principal conducts "walk-throughs" throughout the year. Prospective parents and carers are welcome to join a tour of the school or to ask questions about our school programs.  Please meet at the main school office (Henry Street entrance).  Dates for walk-throughs are as follows:

                             Wednesday, 5 May at 10.00am

                             Wednesday, 21 July at 10.00am

                             Wednesday 1 September at 10.00am


Kindergarten orientation

Children enrolling for Kindergarten are usually invited to attend an orientation program in Term 4 of the year before they start.  Kindergarten students will also start one week later than other students to allow for a more settled start to the year.

Again, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to run our usual orientation program this year. 

However, there will be a dedicated Kindergarten Google site with videos and lots of information, which we are currently working on.  The site will have information about daily routines, uniforms, lunches, Best Start, before and after school care, canteen and other support resources.

If your child will be starting Kindergarten please download the FDPS App and subscribe to "Kindergarten 2021" to receive updates and links as further information becomes available.
