Prep Enrolments for 2018

 
 
If your child was born between 1 July 2012 and 30 June 2013 they are eligible for Prep in 2018.
Prep is now the compulsory first year of schooling for children in Queensland. It is a full-time program and children attend each day from Monday to Friday during the normal school hours of 8:50am to 3:00pm at our school.
Kimberley Park State School is enrolment managed. This means that we are required to prioritise places in our school to children who are living within our geographical catchment. As such, there are different enrolment processes in place depending on whether you live in-catchment or out-of-catchment
 
IN-CATCHMENT ENROLMENTS & SIBLINGS
-          For students who live in-catchment, or siblings of students already attending Kimberley Park State School, completed enrolment forms will be accepted from March 1 of the year before they are due to commence Prep.
-          Enrolment forms are available on the school website or from the school office.
-          A birth certificate and acceptable proof of residence will be required to accept the enrolment application.
-          Office staff will need to sight one of each of the following to establish proof of residency:
·        One primary source – a current lease agreement, or rates notice, or unconditional sale agreement, and
·        One secondary source – a utility bill (e.g. electricity, gas) showing this same address and parent’s/legal guardian’s name
·        Please note that a Driver’s License is NOT regarded by Education Queensland as sufficient proof of residency.
-          Students living in-catchment are guaranteed a position at KPSS.
OUT-OF-CATCHMENT ENROLMENTS
-          For students who live out-of-catchment, completed enrolment forms will be accepted from March 1 of the year before they are due to commence.
-          Enrolment forms are available on the school website or from the school office.
-          A birth certificate will be required to accept the enrolment application.
-          Students residing out-of-catchment will be placed on a waiting list in order of receipt of a complete enrolment application, via mail or email or in person.
PROCESSING OF IN-CATCHMENT & SIBLING ENROLMENTS
As enrolment forms for in-catchment and sibling applications are processed through our school office and entered onto our electronic system, parents will be mailed a letter confirming their child’s enrolment
PROCESSING OF OUT-OF-CATCHMENT ENROLMENTS
From Monday September 11, 2017 we will be regularly reviewing our enrolment data and making ongoing decisions regarding the feasibility of accepting out-of-catchment applications. Parents will be contacted by phone after this date in the event that we are able to accommodate your request for enrolment at Kimberley Park SS.
