​​​​To enrol in Prep your child needs to turn five by June 30 of the year in which they start.  You can check when your child is eligible for Prep using the Queensland Government's Prep Ready Reckoner

Prep is a full time program.  Children attend school Monday to Friday 
(8.50am - 3.00 pm.)

If you wish to enrol your child in Prep for the current year then please navigate
back to "Enrolments" (see tab at left).

The following information pertains to enrolments for the next school year:

Please note that we are an enrolment managed school and may not necessarily be able to accept students from out of catchment.

For those in catchment, we encourage you to send in your enrolment application as early as possible (once school starts) in the year prior to your child starting.  We do not accept enrolments more than a year ahead. 

If out of catchment we ask that you first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) application and you will be placed on a waiting list in order of receipt. If vacancies exist towards the end of that year, then places will be offered to those on the waiting list (strictly in order of receipt).  The opening date for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for Prep students will be Term 1 in the year before entry is required.   For Years 1-6 EOI applications can be submitted at any time.

 

For 2022 Prep entry, out-of-catchment EOI applications are being accepted electronically. Please submit using the button on the eform or save and email EOI applications to admin@birkdaless.eq.edu.au  

Prep Information Sessions

Our Prep Information Sessions are an opportunity for parents and carers to learn about our school and how our Prep teachers make the first year of school special.  Please note the second date is a repeat of the first session.

                            -  4 August 2021 (9:00 – 10:00am).

Please call (07) 3286 0777 to book your place.

 

Prep Enrolment

To enrol your child in our Prep program download our Enrolment Application or Expressions of Interest form (refer to the link on the top right of this page) or contact the school office (Mon-Fri 8am -3.30pm  Ph. (07) 3286 0777).

 

Completed Enrolment or Expression of Interest Applications can be emailed to admin@birkdaless.eq.edu.au  or dropped in at the office.  Please note that if you are not in our catchment area you will be placed on a waiting list and offered a place only if we have spare capacity.  Places will be offered in order of receipt.  

 

Once you have been accepted, you will offered an interview from October onwards. Your child will need to attend this interview with you.  Please make sure you download the information listed in "Enrolments" (see tab at top left) and acquaint yourself with our expectations and procedures. It is preferred that you do this before your interview to streamline the procedure.

Our Prep Orientation program is an opportunity for parents and children to visit the school and experience our Prep classrooms.  This helps to ensure a smooth start to the new year. 

Our Pre Prep and Immersion sessions begin in Term 3 and 4, 2021.
