Glengala PS accepts enrolments for students that live in our school zone. You can find out if your home address is in our school zone by typing your address into the box at this website Find my School.
Glengala PS only accepts enrolments for Foundation students in the year before they start school. We do not have a waiting list and do not accept enrolment for students younger than 4 years of age.
The Department of Education and Training Placement Policy states that if there are sufficient places it is expected that government schools will accept all students of school age seeking enrolment at the school.
If you are interested in enrolling in our school but do not live in our school zone you can request an enrolment but we cannot confirm the enrolment until after we have enrolled all students that live in our zone first and have determined whether our school has capacity.
We welcome new families to our school at any time of the year! We accept students at all year levels. School tours are held every Thursday at 9.15am; please book through the office on 9311 7810 if you would like to attend. You can book an alternative day or time to suit if needed.
Vietnamese and Arabic speaking staff are available to help with enrolments every day from 9am – 3pm.
To be eligible to enrol your child in Foundation, they must turn 5 by the 30th of April of the year in which you wish to enrol them. Your child must start school no later than the year that they turn six years of age – this is the compulsory school starting age in Victoria.
How to Enrol
To enrol your child at our school, you will need to fill out an enrolment form that is available from the school office or can be downloaded from the link on the left. You will need to provide the school with important information about your child, including:
- Evidence of your child’s date of birth
- Your contact, phone and address details, and that of any other parent, guardian and/or carer
- Names and contact details of emergency contacts
- Doctor’s and dentist’s names and phone numbers
- Immunisation Status Certificate
- Health and welfare information
- Information about the language(s) your child speaks and hears at home
- Parents’ education and employment information.
If you need an interpreter to help fill out the enrolment form, we can help organise this for you.
We conduct Transition Sessions so prospective students can see their new environment, meet the teachers and see the Learning Space prior to the first day of school. We encourage you to attend these orientation days with your child so that you also can familiarise yourself with the school.
