Do you have a child turning 5?

Highfield School now has an Enrolment Scheme in place, which means we are zoned.  To check if you are within the school zone please see the map below or go to the "Enrolment Zone" page on this website for further information, you can also phone the school office.

Children may start school on their 5th birthday. We encourage parents to enrol their child well ahead of this so that there is time to have pre school orientation visits. Knowing numbers in advance also helps us to plan for the employment of staff appropriate to our numbers

If you would like to have a look at our facilities and discuss the enrolment of your child then we encourage you to contact our Office on 03 686 1419 and to speak to Nicola Casey-Newton to make a time for a tour of the school with Shayne Gallagher our Principal.

It's a good idea to bring your child with you to this meeting, as they will get a chance to have a look around the school too. 

At the meeting with the Principal, he will tell you about our school and how we do things. He'll ask questions about your child and you can ask any questions you have too. You'll go for a walk around the school, and will get to have a look at the space your child will be learning in, and meet some of the teachers.


You don't have to bring the completed enrolment forms with you to the meeting with the Principal, but it's great if you do. He will give you an enrolment pack with all the forms and a copy of our school prospectus and any other relevant information when you meet. 

Before your child starts their first day with us, we need the completed enrolment form along with a copy of your childs' birth certificate (if they are a new entrant) and immunisation certificate, and passport with valid visas if applicable.
