Enrolling your Child

Currently there are two enrolment forms used at this school. One is for enrolment into the preschool and the other for enrolment into the school. If a child is enrolled in the preschool, a school enrolment form must be filled out prior to starting school.

All children begin preschool and reception at the beginning of the year. There is only one intake each year; however students from another school can enrol to go to Echunga Primary School at any time.

Children who turn 4 on or before 30th April each year begin preschool at the beginning of that year. Those who turn 4 after this date begin preschool at the beginning of the next year.

Those children who turn 5 on or before 30th April each year begin reception at the beginning of that year. Those who turn 5 after this date begin reception at the beginning of the next year.

A tour is encouraged and can be arranged before enrolling. Just call the school on (08)83888306 to arrange a time.
