Enrolments

Enrolments are open all year round, for all primary levels, Foundation to Year 6. School tours are scheduled regularly and may be arranged outside set dates by appointment. We welcome visitors and are always eager to share what we do with others. Enrolment forms are available online or may be collected from the school’s administration.

Transition to Primary Education

Our Foundation Transition Program aims to provide your child with many opportunities to learn about our school and begin settling in. Our goal is to have students feel safe, happy and excited about starting their school life at Le Page Primary.

It is our hope that each child has a happy, positive and satisfying beginning to the great adventure of life at school. Our supportive and caring transition program focuses on building relationships between your child, teacher and family. Once enrolled we strongly recommend that your child attends each transition session:

  • Fridays 9:30 – 10:30 am April 17, May 15, Jun 19, July 17, Aug 14, Nov 27
  • Friday 9:30 – 12:30 pm (half-day program) Dec 4

During these transition sessions your child will participate in various learning experiences that will help the teachers determine home groups and learning spaces for 2021. These sessions will also provide opportunities for children to familiarise themselves with the Foundation learning spaces and playground.

In term 4, parents may extend the transition process by hours, half and full days, to cater for their children’s individualised needs.

A parent information session for 2021 enrolments will be held on Monday December 7 at 6:00 pm. School programs, uniform, book lists & school fees will be the focus of the session.

We look forward to meeting you and your child.

Transition to Secondary Education

As part of the transition from Year 6 to Year 7, students in government secondary schools participate in an orientation day. All government schools hold this orientation day on the same day (often the second Tuesday of December). It may include a school tour, meeting fellow students and teachers, and taking part in special lessons and activities. For information on preparing your child for secondary school, see:
