How to enrol

Thank you for considering Whitehorse Primary School as a primary school option for your child.  We are taking enrolments for all levels from Foundation (Prep) to Grade 6. Children commencing Foundation (Prep) must turn 5 years by 30 April in the year which they are starting.


Our school zone is available on findmyschool which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones.

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 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.  


All children enrolling for Foundation (Prep) are offered the opportunity to participate in a Transition program in the year prior. This program provides an insight into school life and assists your child in feeling comfortable and happy about starting school.


If you would like to enrol your child, we would encourage you to obtain an Information & Enrolment pack from our School Office. You are also welcome to download an enrolment form:
