Enrolments

At Clover Hill State School we believe it is important that we develop a partnership with our families. To support this relationship and welcome new families into our Clover Hill State School community we require that all enrolling students and the parent / caregiver attend an initial enrolment meeting with our parent liaison officer.

At this meeting our parent liaison officer, will help families complete our enrolment form and clarify details about our school uniform and behaviour policies. The parent liaison officer will then arrange for an interview with the appropriate administrator who will obtain relevant information about the student that will facilitate a smooth transition and to clarify school policies and procedures for the family.

Preparatory year

Preparatory year of schooling is a non-compulsory, full-time program of schooling based on a play based curriculum. Children must be aged five by 30 June in the year they enrol. Parents can enrol their child in the preparatory year by contacting the school directly. There will be no waiting list for enrolment in the preparatory year.

To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator. 

Primary

From January 2008, children must be six by 30 June in the year they enrol in year 1. Under special circumstances, children may be enrolled at a younger age. Parents may enrol a child in their local primary school by contacting the school directly. For a child entering year 1, schools require proof of the child's date of birth, such as a birth certificate, passport or visa.

Enrolment procedure

An enrolment form needs to be completed for every child at the time of their enrolment.

Two regulations of the Education Act to note are:

  • For the purpose of enrolment of a child, the principal requires a parent/guardian to produce documentary evidence of the date of birth of this child if the child is from interstate or from a non-state school, or produce a transfer form if the child is from another state school.

  • If a student was born overseas, evidence of citizenship, passport and Visa must be produced prior to the commencement of enrolment.
