Enrolling Your Child

 
Pre-enrolment
We encourage parents to pre-enrol their preschool children by the age of four. 
 
New Entrant Enrolment
At the age of five, a child may start school.  Most children start on or just after their 5th birthday.
Glenholme School offers the opportunity for new entrant children to have pre-school visits at least 4 weeks before they start school.   
Pre-school visits are hosted every Wednesday morning from 9.00 am until 10.00 am in one of the Year 0/1 classes.  A legal guardian must remain on-site with the preschooler at all times.
 
All Enrolments
Deputy Principal, Mrs Molly Norton will meet with new enrolments.  On the day your child starts school please report to the school office.
All students need to be in full school uniform on the day that they start at Glenholme School
All students who are in the school zone will be eligible to enrol at Glenholme School. Out of Zone enrolments are limited to spaces being available at the time of enrolment.

School Zone

 
Zone
Our school operates an enrolment policy within a defined zone for pupils.
  • If you live within the Glenholme School zone you are guaranteed a place at our school. 
  • If you live outside the Glenholme School zone your child will only be able to enrol through an out of zone ballot, which is held termly, if there are spaces available.
Please contact the school office and complete an enrolment form to ensure you are included in the out of zone ballot which is completed in Week 8 each term.  You will be notified of the outcome of the ballot.
