If you are outside our school zone, please call the school office to discuss the possibility of enrolment. Tel 03 9885 3624.

School Uniform
See more information here about purchasing school unform. 

Please note that as of 28 February 2018, an Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register will be the only form of documentation accepted as proof of a child's immunisation status.
Without a statement showing completed immunisation, your child will not be able to be enrolled in school.
Documents provided by GPs or other immunisation providers will no longer be sufficient as a form of evidence.
Medicare will usually automatically send you an Immunisation History Statement when your child turns 5.
