Prep

Prep parents considering enrolling their child at Patricks Road are asked to check the catchment map on our website.  We enrol any children who live within this area upon proof of residency.

If you reside outside this area, applications for enrolment will be taken from  8 am on the first Monday of March in the year prior to starting Prep.  Parents are required to line up outside the administration block to receive these applilcations.  The applications given to parents at this time are numbered and are not a guarantee of enrolment.  As our numbers are confirmed towards the middle of term 4, some prospective students may be invited to enrol.

Information regarding Information Evenings is distributed to the local child care centres and kindergartens and advertised in the local newspapers and on our school sign.

We offer a Prep Information Evening towards the middle of the year.  At this evening, several of the Prep teachers and the principal will be in attendance and will be able to give you information about the program at Patricks Road.  Information packs will be available at this time.  You will also be able to book a time for an interview with the principal, deputy principal and/or Prep teachers, which is for both you and your child. You will need to bring a copy of your child's birth certificate to the interview.

A Prep Orientation morning is held towards the end of the year.  This morning begins in the hall and children are allocated to their classes and on most occasions, are able to meet their teacher and classmates.  Uniforms are available for order on this morning.

To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.
