Enrolling at Winthrop Primary School
Families living in Winthrop Primary School's catchment area are invited to enrol at Winthrop. If there are places available in classrooms, the school will consider accepting enrolments outside of the boundary.
Proof of residence will be required on enrolment. Enrolment forms are legal documents and for your convenience the Application for Enrolment form is available for download below.
Applications for Enrolment in Kindergarten and Pre-primary for commencement in 2019 will be accepted from Friday 1st June 2018. Enrolment packs can be collected from the front office. All enrolment enquires can be made at reception between 9:30am - 2:30pm daily.
Further information about Public School Enrolments can be found at the Department of Education’s website.
To find out the school year of your child or to check your child is old enough to start Kindergarten, visit the Department of Education’s School Age Calculator.
Although Kindergarten is not compulsory, most parents send their children to Kindergarten so they get the best start to learning.
Kindergarten enrolments are accepted from approximately May to July each year for entry the following year.
Information about required documentation for enrolment is detailed on the Application for Enrolment form and can be downloaded below.
