Alphington Primary School

Enrolment Process

Foundation student enrolment applications are invited during the year prior to commencing school.  Students residing within the Alphington Primary School enrolment zone are guaranteed an enrolment place.  Students who live beyond this region are welcome to apply for a place and may be considered for enrolment. Enrolment offers will be confirmed in writing early Term 3.  Students who have a sibling enrolled have priority status. Student Enrolments received for students in Years 1 to 6 will be considered if there is a vacancy in that year level.

Starting School - Prep Enrolment

Children who will reach the age of 5 years on or before 30 April may commence school at the commencement of that school year.  The following documentation is required for enrolment:

Open Afternoon

Alphington Primary School Open Afternoon is held during Education Week each year.  This is an excellent opportunity for children and parents to see the school and classrooms in operation. School tours are run by our Year 6 students, great ambassadors for the school and a personal tour with the Principal can also be arranged if you wish. Enrolment forms and information are readily available on the day.

For families arriving from overseas, school entry is determined by the Visa Subclass Number on your child’s Passport. Students unable to enrol directly into the school can enrol via the International Education Division.
