2020 Student Enrolment Form
Expression of Interest
All families interested in enrolling a student for Foundation Year in 2020 or 2021 at Newlands Primary School are asked to complete an Expression of Interest form and return it completed to the school office. This form can be downloaded from this website.
Please make a time to meet with the Principal for a tour and to discuss your child’s enrolment.
If you wish to enrol your child at any other time during the school year then you need to contact the school to make arrangements to meet with our Principal and discuss your child’s enrolment.
Families who have expressed an interest for their children to be enrolled in our 2020 Foundation class and who have met the criteria in our enrolment policy will be sent an offer to join.
Our policy for enrolment is siblings first, then children whose closest school is Newlands and then, those who are interested in attending Newlands for curriculum considerations (Spanish and Performing Arts).
Enrolling during the school year?
Newlands P.S. accepts enrolments during the school year across all grade levels. To enrol you must make an appointment with the principal to discuss your reasons for enrolment.
Please contact the school if you wish to enrol. Our Principal will discuss the details of the enrolment process with you and advise you if we have a vacancy for your child. More information on the process can be found at : http://www.education.vic.gov.au/school/parents/primary/Pages/international.aspx
