The Enrolment Process

Foundation Intake

Good Shepherd has an intake period subject to the following criterion.

The first Foundation intake is at Term 1. This requires the child to turn 5 years of age before May 1st.

The second Foundation intake is at Term 3. This is for children who turn 5 years of age after 1st May and before 31st July. All other children who turn 5 after 31st July will start the following year. This second Foundation intake is subject to available spaces. The child will continue in reception the following year. If a space is unavailable the child is guaranteed to start reception in Term 1 the following year. Confirmation of an available space will be given in May so that parents can enrol appropriately for their child’s ‘kindy’ year prior to commencing at Good Shepherd.

Class Sizes

The preferred class size is 24 students but on rare occasion may exceed this subject to School Council approval.

Procedure

  1. Contact the school to arrange a meeting with the Principal.
  2. Lodgement of an enrolment application.
  3. Principal offers a place (subject to availability).
  4. Parents receive notification regarding information sessions and transition visits prior to commencing school.
