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.

In 2020 the New South Wales DoE has tightened arrangements significantly around out of zone enrolments. Schools beyond 'capacity' such as Banora Point Primary School cannot accept enrolments of families living out of zone for any reason. Should the school have available vacancy below the specified 'capacity' then the school may consider accepting out of zone enrolments. At this time Banora Point Primary School is well beyond 'capacity' as capacity is determined by the number of permanent classrooms in the school.  Banora Point Primary School has a high number of demountable buildings.

Should you have an address within zone, your enrolment will be automatically accepted.

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.
