Enrolling at Yinnar Primary School
Children who will reach the age of five years on or before 30th April may commence school in January of that year. An enrolment form may be obtained from the school office.
Transferring from another school
To transfer a child from one school to another it is necessary to notify the current school of the intention to transfer the child. A transfer note is then prepared and forwarded to the new school. A progress report form will also be completed and forwarded to the new school.
We have been unable to run our usual transition program due to Covid-19.
This year's dates are:
Tuesday 17th of November
Wednesday the 25th of November
Tuesday 1st of December
State wide transition: Tuesday 8th of November.
School Entry Assessment
At the start of their Prep Year the children at our school participate in the Prep Entry Assessment Program which is used in Victorian Government Primary Schools.
The Assessment Tasks are designed to assist teachers in gathering information about your child’s literacy and numeracy understandings. This information will help us provide the very best teaching and learning programs to cater for the individual needs of your child and to ensure that starting school is a rewarding and profitable experience.
If you are interested in further information on this process booklets are available for borrowing from the school or you can download more information here.
Prep Attendance Days
During February and early March Preps will attend on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays only. Wednesday is a day for them to rest, and for teachers to plan and interview parents.
