In Western Australia, children can start their education in Kindergarten, however compulsory schooling starts the following year in Pre-Primary.
Applications for 2021 open 18 May and close on Friday 24 July 2020.
You need to apply to enrol your children in school for 2021 if they are:
- starting Kindergarten – 4 years old by 30 June 2021
- starting Pre-Primary, the first year of compulsory school – 5 years old by 30 June 2021
- starting Year 7, the first year of secondary school
- changing schools.
Enrolment requirements differ from school to school. Mount Lawley PS is a local-intake school with a defined boundary as described below. Families who reside within the local-intake area are guaranteed enrolment for their children in the compulsory years of schooling (PP to Year 6). Children whose usual place of residence is not in the local-intake area are accommodated where possible but acceptance is at the principal's discretion. Parents are encouraged to apply by the closing date, even if the child is of compulsory school age and is guaranteed a place in the school. This assists us with planning for the following year.
