Information for Prep 2023


 

 

At Glen Iris Primary School, we understand that choosing a school to give your child the best start to their education journey is a big decision.
We endeavour to ensure that every child makes a successful transition to Primary School, and that the promotion is a trouble-free and happy experience.
Parent participation and involvement is actively encouraged and appreciated, and we welcome the opportunity to show you what Glen Iris Primary School has to offer you and your child. 

 

If you are in our school's Enrolment Zone, complete the enrolment form below and email it to the school: 

 glen.iris.ps@education.vic.gov.au.

 

You can send in enrolment forms at any time the year prior to commencement, and ideally by June.

 

To complete the enrolment process, we will also need copies of your child's Birth Certificate (or Passport) and Immunisation Statement from Medicare. These can also be scanned and emailed to us. 

 

Alternatively, you can post the forms or deliver them to the school.

Prep "Take Off" Transition Program

 

In Term 4 of this year, the 2023 Prep students will attend school for four "Take Off" Transition sessions. There is one session per week for four weeks, and each session lasts for an hour. These sessions will help introduce the students to the school environs, help them make friends, and allow the Prep teachers to get to know the incoming students.

 

At the same time as the students are participating, we offer information sessions for the parents on subjects such as preparing to start school, uniform information, and so forth. 

 

Information about the Prep 2023 "Take Off" transition program has been emailed to the parents of enrolled students. It can also be found here
