Choosing the right school for your child is a very important decision. These are the steps that we recommend you take:
Step 1: Find My School
Bimbadeen Heights Primary School zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2020 onwards.
Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.
The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.
You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.
Step 2: Transition to School Parent Information
Information for parents/carers about choosing a school and enrolling your child can be located on the Department of Education’s Parent page.
The Department of Education has produced a Transition to School Parent Information Pack that is distributed to parents/carers via their child’s Preschool or Kindergarten each year. The Outer East Area – North Eastern Victoria Region has produced an updated version of this Transition to School Parent Information Pack that provides specific information about schools in the Outer East Area.
Step 3: Take Our Online Video Tour
The ideal starting place to learn more about us. We have a library of videos where you can:
- Meet our principal
- Hear from our dedicated & talented teachers
- Get to know some of our students
- Gain some insights from our current parents
- Learn about our curriculum opportunities
- Tips for a smooth start to school for your child
… and so much more!
Step 4: Book a School Tour
A school tour with our Principal is a great opportunity to see our school in action and to get a ‘feel’ for the school and assess if it will meet the learning needs for your child.
Interested parents are encouraged to book a school tour with our Principal. We conduct a personal tour specifically for Foundation families from Term 1 through to the middle of Term 3, by appointment.
Step 5: Fill Out An Enrolment Form
As a requirement, we need some paperwork filled out and returned to us.
You can download our enrolment form here – and either fill it out using your online PDF editor or print it, fill it out and return it to us.
Alternatively, drop in and pick a form up from the school or call us and we can mail one out to you.
Give us a call if you need assistance.
Step 6: Foundation (Prep) Transition Program
An important feature of our school is the well established and successful Foundation Transition Program that we run. One of our priorities is that all children new to the school feel happy and secure as quickly as possible. Having your child attend our Foundation Transition program is a great way to ensure they get off on the right foot.
Step 7: Start Your Learning Journey With Us
We are here to make learning engaging, challenging but most of all – fun!
We want school to be a happy place where excitement & adventure is the norm, imaginations are encouraged to run wild, friendships are developed and good character is built.
