Enrolment

St Peters PS Kindergarten Enrolment 2021

The processes for enrolling out of area are different to those of enrolling in area. In area enrolments require an enrolment form to be completed as well as the provision of 100 points of identity (ID) proof, proof of date of birth (DOB) and nationality via passport and birth certificate as well as immunisation records. Out of area applications require an out of area application form to be completed before an enrolment form will be accepted.  Siblings are given priority, then each application is considered on a case-by-case basis. 

In 2020 applications for enrolment are now open for 2021 Kindergarten. On Tuesday 26 May, at 7:30pm the school will be holding a new parent information session via Zoom (due to social distancing). Please contact the school and we will send you the Zoom meeting details. 

On Tuesday 4 August, as part of Education Week we will be holding an Open Day Assembly. On this day, from 9:30am, new families can join our existing families to enjoy a special assembly, take a tour of the school led by our P&C and mingle with new and existing families at a BBQ lunch hosted by the P&C. We look forward to seeing you then.

Later in the year on 29 October, 5 November and 12 November we will be holding our orientation sessions. Whilst students are in their orientation sessions, information sessions for parents will be held to help you with the process of transition as well as helping your child learn at school (subject to COVID-19 social distancing protocols). 

At any time families are welcome to contact the school to make an appointment to see the principal, Mrs Rebecca Salter about enrolment enquiries. 

We look forward to welcoming your family to St Peters Public School. 

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 

Contact us when you’re ready to enrol your child in our school. You may need to 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.

The application form 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

For information about eligibility and forms to complete, visit the Temporary Residents Program.

Out-of-area enrolments

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

We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.

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 the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.

For more information about educational opportunities in rural areas, visit Rural and distance education.

Moving overseas

Moving overseas and need school reports authenticated for DFAT? 

Email document.authentication@det.nsw.edu.au to arrange to bring original documents to 105 Phillip Street, Parramatta 2150.

As indicated above, any out of area application requires an out of area enrolment application form to be completed. This combined with a conversation with the principal from your local school (iff applicable) will be used to determine if the application is accepted.
