If your child turns 5 before 1 May, they can start primary school (the first year is known as reception) at the beginning of the year.

If your child turns 5 on or after 1 May, they can start the next year.

All children must be enrolled at school by 6 years of age, which is the compulsory school starting age.

You might be able to enrol your child earlier or later, if it will benefit their education. There are specific criteria for this - if you think this applies to your child, talk to the principal.

Mid-year intake from 2024

From 2024 there will be a mid-year intake into school. 

From 2024, if your child turns 5 years between 1 May and 31 October, they can start school in either:

  • term 3 of the same year

  • or term 1 the following year.

Students enrolled through a mid-year intake will complete 6 terms of reception.

We will release more information about the mid-year intake during 2023. 

If your child is eligible for the mid-year intake in 2024, you might be interested in the preschool mid-year intake which starts in 2023.

Finding a school - Pre-school

If you have a child starting at East Para in 2024 or 2025 and have not given the office an

enrolment form, please contact the school and we can send one home for you to fill out. 

This will enable us to more accurately gather information on projected numbers of new

enrolments and work towards permanent appointment of contract teachers.

If you know of any families that are considering sending their children to East Para, please ask

them to come in to see us or to phone us on   8264 3944 to discuss their child’s enrolment. 

Information Packs including expression of interest forms can be collected at the front office. 

For more information families can email the school : or to request an information pack be sent to their home.
