The enrolment process differs slightly depending on the age of your child.

If your child is starting school for the first time, we would ideally like to have you digitally pre-enrol them by the time they are 4 1/2 years old. This helps us with our planning and organization.


For children who are older or changing schools, please digitally pre-enrol them as soon as possible to start the pre-enrolment process with us.


When you submit the digital pre-enrolment,  our enrolment officer will come back to you and request documents to ensure your child can enrol in our school.  Please note that we are happy to accept copies of original documents but all documents need to be translated if they are not in English (such as birth certificate or vaccination records).  These requested documents can include the following:

-Child and parents’ passports/visas (if born overseas)

-Date of entry stamp in the child’s passport (if born overseas)
-Child’s birth certificate
-Child’s immunisation record
-Signed current tenancy agreement OR latest rates
-1 recent proof of address which is a power or broadband bill in the parent’s name showing the child’s address

-Photo of the child


For New Entrants (Year 0-1), once your child’s pre-enrolment is completed, you will be invited to attend our interactive pre-school visit programme.  Parents are required to stay with their child for all visits.  Our lead teacher will discuss your child’s start date with you when arranging the pre-school visits.

For all other new students, once we have received all your documents and have advised you that your child is successfully pre-enrolled at Freemans Bay School,  parents (with the enrolling child) are asked to have an interview with the Principal, Deputy Principal or Associate Principals as part of the enrolment process. This way we can get to know you as a family and discuss the learning needs of your child. Once the interview is complete, we can discuss your child’s preferred start date at Freemans Bay School.
