prep_enrolment banner.JPGTo determine whether your child is eligible for Prep, please refer to the Prep Ready Reckoner calculator. We have 100 spaces available for Prep students.

Parents enrolling their child for Prep are required to provide the child’s original Birth Certificate for sighting by the school admin staff as evidence of the child’s date of birth. Parents are also strongly urged to ensure that children enrolling to begin school have been immunised.

Please phone the office (3285 0333) to book an appointment for a Prep enrolment interview. Both the parent and child should attend the interview.


Transition to Prep

Starting school is an exciting and significant time in every child’s life. Transition to school begins well before a child starts school and ends when the child feels safe, secure and a sense of belonging at school.

Petrie has a very comprehensive Transition to Prep program aimed at supporting both the child and parent as they prepare to begin school. A positive start to school is linked to positive educational and social outcomes, and children having high expectations regarding their ability to learn and succeed at school.

The goals for our Transition Program are to:

  • familiarise children with the school environment and some school routines
  • build confidence and an expectation of success at school
  • build relationships and partnerships with families and kindergartens
  • have both parents and children comfortable and excited about school

We do this through:

  • Parent Information Evening about Prep
  • Enrolment Interview Activities
  • Prep Open Mornings
  • Countdown to Prep
  • Close partnerships with local Kindergartens
