Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Enrol at Banora Point Public School

Parents enrolling their children complete an enrolment form (further down the page) which provides the school with important information. If you change your workplace, emergency telephone contact number, home telephone number or address, please inform the office of the change straight away.

Enrolment at our school is generally offered to students living in the Banora Point zone. A separate 'out of zone' application needs to be completed for consideration by the enrolment committee if the child lives outside the designated zone.

Starting school – ages

Children may start Kindergarten at the beginning of the school year if they turn five years of age on or before 31st July in that year.  Kindergarten children will start the school year one day later than the rest of the students. Students must enrol in Kindergarten the year they turn six.

Kinder orientation

An extensive orientation program for prospective Kindergarten students is offered.

We begin with promotional meetings and school tours from Term 2, and end with class visits in Term 4.

Local enrolment area

Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. The School Finder shows our local enrolment area. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol 

When you’re ready to enrol your child in our school, you’ll attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.

For more information, visit primary school enrolment or contact us to discuss your child’s enrolment.

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

Temporary visas and international students

Non-local enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible for access to this provision.
