  2. Students who are members of a Lutheran Congregation
  3. Children of currently employed staff

Applications for Kindergarten

When an application is completed, you will receive an email acknowledging the receipt of that application.

Age requirement

Proof of age must be presented with the enrolment application. Children must turn five years of age by 31 March of the year in which they start school. 
 
We understand that many children with later birthdays may already know their numbers and letters. They may even be able to read. School readiness is measured in five domains:
  • Physical health and wellbeing 
  • Social competence 
  • Emotional maturity 
  • Language and cognitive skills and 
  • Communication skills and general knowledge.
 
Our philosophy is that student wellbeing comes first. Hence, students’ social competence, emotional maturity and communication skills are as important as their academic readiness. Research suggests that student wellbeing both in Kindergarten and beyond is better in students who begin at older ages. 
 
Interview
 
Interviews with incoming Kindergarten students and their families begin in March of the year preceding the year of intended enrolment. The child should be present with the parents. The purpose is to get to know one another. We will learn about you and your child. You will learn about our philosophy and approach to teaching and learning. Our commitment to partnering together begins with this first honest conversation.
 
Applications close
 
Our first round of application close 1 May. Interviews continue through May and Enrolment Offers are made to families in early June. If places remain available, a second round of interviews will commence and places will be offered until they are filled.
