Do you have a child who is turning 6 next year or who turn 5 before the end of July next year? If you do your child is eligible to enrol at St Peters Public School. Our enrolments for 2020 entry are open now for all students in our local catchment (see figure below). Enrolling is easy. You simply fill in an enrolment form and send it by email or even better bring it to the school office. We require some documentation to support the application, including proof of address (a recent bill, rental agreement or title deeds will do). We also require your child's proof of brith date and identity (birth certificate and passport) as well as immunisation records (obtainable online).
If you are a resident in our local area you will be accepted immediately. However, if not, you can still put in an enrolment form and fill in an out of area form. After a discussion with the principal of the school you are local to, and an assessment of the reason for enrolment, you may be accepted. However, from this year St Peters Public School will not accept out of area enrolments from any families who reside in the local areas of the schools it directly shares borders with (Camdenville, Newtown, Tempe, Marrickville, Gardeners Road or Mascot Public Schools). Exceptions may be made where there is a specific need and following a discussion between both schools.
We have a number of dates coming up that will allow you to make a decision and find our more information about St Peters Public School. The first is an information evening that is at 7:30pm in our library on Tuesday 28 May. The second is to attend our Open Day on 7 August which starts with an assembly in our hall starting at 9:30am followed by a P&C led tour of the school for the kids and a BBQ lunch in our courtyard. This is a great opportunity to meet the community and see the school first hand. Of course at any time you are welcome to meet with our school principal - Dr Neil Lavitt and have a personal meeting followed by a tour of the school. This is a great opportunity to discuss options, raise concerns and ask questions.
In late October and early November we have two orientation days for enrolled families to attend. The children go into a kindergarten classroom and the adults receive some additional information from Dr Lavitt about the school. The second session is like the first with the exception of Dr Lavitt providing a supporting your child's learning in transition and the first year at school workshop.
If your child attends a preschool or day care centre that you feel would benefit from some additional advice on transition and how to decide on schooling from a school perspective, feel free to ask your centre to contact Dr Lavitt at the school. he would be happy to arrange and provide a school context agnostic talk to help parents make good decisions.
