Children must turn 5 by 30 June in their prep school year or 6 in their first year of school to be eligible for enrolment in year 1. Birth certificate must accompany the Student enrolment form for all students.
Because of enrolment capacity and growth Canungra State School may be unable to meet this obligation in the future, unless action is taken to manage enrolments. The Principal must restrict the enrolment of out-of-catchment students to ensure in-catchment students can enrol at their local state school. A school’s local catchment area is the defined geographical area from which the school is to have its core intake of students. The school’s catchment map is available to be viewed at either the school’s administration building or online at http://www.qgso.qld.gov.au/maps/edmap
Any student, whose principal place of residence is within the school’s catchment area/s, is (subject to the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006) entitled to enrol at the school. The school Principal will reserve places for students who move into the catchment area throughout the school year. Parents or legal guardians who wish to enrol their child at the school will need to demonstrate that the student’s principal place of residence is within the catchment area. Current proof of residency at the address indicated can be provided by way of one of each of the following:
- One primary source – a current rental/lease agreement, or rates notice, or unconditional contract of sale; and
- One secondary source – a utility bill (e.g. electricity, gas) showing this same address and parent’s/legal guardian’s name.
Out-of-catchment students applying for enrolment at this school are placed on a waiting list, assessed in order of receipt and prioritised.
More information is available in the handbook that we have compiled for parents.
Prep year at our school
As many of you are aware, in 2008 all schools in Queensland extended our current preschool arrangements and offer a full-time preparatory (prep) year.
The preparatory year is designed to provide children with a solid base to the early years of education and make the move to year 1 easier. The prep year curriculum has been developed to link with the early years of school. It is child centered and inquiry based. If you have any questions in relation to prep enrolment, please come and ask at the school or visit Enrolling your child.
To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator and download the Student enrolment form.
Resources your child will require can be found under the 'Curriculum' tab of the website or under Related links.
Homework provides students with opportunities to consolidate their classroom learning, pattern behaviour
for lifelong learning beyond the classroom and involve family members in their learning.
More information about homework can be found in the Homework policy.
