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.


Whitehorse Primary School follows the Department of Education and Training's Placement Policy which outlines the processes by which places are offered at Victorian public schools. This policy embeds the legal entitlement for students to enrol at their desginated neighbourhood school.
Use Find My School to find out if Whitehorse Primary School is your designated neighbourhood school.


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:
