In South Australia, public primary schools have one intake date, this means:
- If your child turns five years before 1 May they can start primary school the first day of term 1 of that year.
- If your child turns five on or after 1 May they can start primary school the first day of term 1 of the following year.
The one intake date brings South Australia into line with other states and means every child has four terms of pre-schooling and reception before starting the rest of their schooling.
Your child must be at school by their sixth birthday – this is the compulsory school starting age.
We provide school tours on the first Wednesday of each month (except in school holidays). These are promoted in our local pre-schools and children’s centres. If you would like to book at place for a school tour, please complete the form below.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any specific questions or require assistance submitting an intention to enrol.
