Enrolment forms can be downloaded from the school website or families are welcome to collect an enrolment form and/or pack from the office.  Families are able to contact the school office on 9758 1013 or via the school website.  We look forward to welcoming you to St John the Baptist School.

Meeting with the Principal

 

Parents and prospective students will meet with the Principal and Deputy Principal for the opportunity to commence our partnership with you and your child. This is an opportunity to provide support as you prepare to transition to school, learn more about aspects of school life and how we can work together to provide your child with a positive and successful start to school.

Letters of Offer for Prep 2024 will be emailed to families at the beginning of June 2023.

A member of our School Team will visit students at kindergarten for an opportunity to interact with them in an environment in which they feel safe and comfortable.

In October and November 2023 we will then commence our transition sessions when students have the opportunity to visit St John the Baptist, to meet other students and some of the teachers who will be teaching them once they begin school. We will have three sessions.

At the beginning of Term 4 we will hold an important information evening for our 2024 Prep families, where we will present everything families need to know to ensure a successful start to school.
