We are now taking applications for enrolment. You need to enrol for:
Kindergarten – Children must be born between 1 July 2015 and 30 July 2016 to go to Kindy in 2020.
Pre-primary (first year of compulsory school) – 5 years old by 30 June 2020
If you are changing schools.
The enrolment process for Kindy is:
Complete and submit an application for enrolment before Friday 26 July 2019.
The Principal considers all applications and takes into account local intake area and number of classroom places before advising parents if their application is successful.
If there are too many applications for the available spaces, those who do not live in the intake area are no longer considered. If there are still too many applications, priority is given to those who have siblings enrolled at the school and who live closest to the school, and then those who live closest to the school but without siblings at the school.
Once a decision has been made about each application, parents are notified and they can complete the enrolment process.
Please note: Acceptance into the Kindy program does not guarantee placement in the Pre-primary to Year 6 program at Mount Hawthorn Primary School.
For current Kindy children the enrolment process is simple. Families will be notified through the newsletter and liaison parents that they need to advise the class teacher if they are or are not returning to the school for 2020. Contact detail forms are sent home towards the end of year to ensure details are up to date ready for the next year for any communication. During Pre-primary orientation in Term 4, parents are required to present two items as proof of residence within the local intake area to the school office. We keep a checklist of the address we have on record and the address which is on the proof of residence document.
The documents that are required include birth certificate, immunisation records (available from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register), proof of address, and if relevant, Family Court orders.

The first years of school are so important. It is a time when your child discovers the wonder and excitement of learning, exploring and imagining.
It is really important for you to be involved in your child’s learning during these important years. Continuing the learning at home helps build their confidence at school and in life.
