Children must be enrolled at school by the age of 6. This is the compulsory starting age for children in South Australia. Most children start school from the age of 5. If your child turns 5 before 1 May, they can start primary school at the beginning of that year.
You can collect an application form directly from our school during term 2.
Visit the school enrolment section on the department’s website for more information.
