Enrolling at our school

Enrolment Procedure

 

Kruger State School has an Enrolment Management Plan. Generally, this means that only students in our local catchment area can attend the school. We have limited ability to accept enrolments from outside the catchment area.

Enrolment Policy

Students within catchment

Any student, whose principal place of residence is within the school’s catchment area/s, is (subject to the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006) eligible for enrolment at the school. The school Principal will hold places for students who relocate to within the catchment area throughout the school year.

Parents or legal guardians who wish to enrol their child at the school will need to demonstrate that the student’s principal place of residence is within the catchment area. Current proof of residency at the address indicated can be provided by way of one of each of the following:

To enrol your child/ren, you will need the following documentation:

One primary source – a current lease agreement, or driver’s licence, or unconditional sale agreement, and

One secondary source – a utility bill (e.g. electricity, gas), or rates notice showing this same address and parent’s/legal guardian’s name. 

If the Principal is not satisfied that the documentation provided by an applicant demonstrates adequately that the address stated is the student’s principal place of residence, then the Principal may request further sources of proof of residence, such as an additional utility bill (e.g. water) showing the same address.f the Principal is not satisfied that the documentation provided by an applicant demonstrates adequately that the address stated is the student’s principal place of residence, then the Principal may request further sources of proof of residence, such as an additional utility bill (e.g. water) showing the same address.

The Principal may also request a properly sworn Statutory Declaration from the enrolling parent or legal guardian attesting that the student’s principal place of residence is the place nominated in the enrolment application.

 Applicants should note that a false statement / assertion about the student’s principal place of residence may amount to an offence and may be reported to police. The school Principal may repeal a decision to enrol a student in such circumstances.

Other enrolment requirements:

  • If you are coming from interstate or overseas you must have a Birth Certificate or acceptable proof of birth e.g. extract or passport. We need proof of age for all children entering Prep as well as the parent's Passport/visa.
  • Parents or caregivers must be the adults enrolling the students.
  • Report Cards and Records of previous schooling is very helpful information particularly with interstate enrolments.
  • Emergency Contacts are required for urgent contact with parents or relatives.

These medications must have clear written instructions about quantity and time of administration. Parents, with children who have high medical needs e.g. anaphylaxis, epilepsy, diabetes etc., need to provide a copy of the child’s management plan from their treating doctor.
