Enrolling at our school

Enrolling your child at Waterford State School

To enrol your child in our school, you will need to contact the office to collect the appropriate forms or download enrolment forms from this site and book a time for the enrolment interview. When coming to the interview, you will need to bring the following documents for the Administration team to sight.

  • Each child's birth certificate or passport.
  • Your proof of residency.
  • A current passport and visa is required for any child born overseas.
  • Each child's most recent student report card.
  • Information about any medical conditions or medication your child has to take whilst at school.

At the enrolment interview we will:

  • Discuss the details of your enrolment application.
  • Organise uniforms.
  • Organise a book list.
  • Complete an enrolment agreement.

Enrolling your child in Prep

The Prep year is the first year of school for your child. It is a full-time program and children attend each day from Monday to Friday during the normal school hours of 8.45 am to 2.45 pm. From 2017, Prep is compulsory. Your child must be 5 by 30 June in the year they enrol in Prep. To find out when your child is eligible to enrol in the Prep year, view the Department's prep ready reckoner calculator to determine when your child can commence their preparatory year.
