Enrolment


When enrolling your child you will be asked to fill in the Department of Education & Early Childhood Development (DEECD) enrolment form. All information provided to the school is confidential, being collected and used in accordance with the Privacy Laws. This confidential enrolment form asks for personal information about your child as well as family members and others that provide care for your child. Health information is asked for so that staff at Murchison P.S. can properly care for your child. This includes information about any medical condition or disability your child may have, medicati on your child may rely on while at school, any known allergies and contact details of your child’s doctor.
 
Murchison P.S. depends on you to provide all relevant health information be cause withholding some health information may put your child’s health at risk.  Murchison P.S. requires information about all parents, guardians or carers so that we can take account of family arrangements. Family Court Orders setting out any access restrictions and parenting plans should be made available to the Principal of Murchison P.S.
 
For children beginning their primary school life, it is necessary to bring evidence of your child's age when you come to enrol. The Department of Education & Early Childhood Development (DEECD) regulation is that children must be five by April 30 in the year they start.
 
It is also necessary to bring to the school an immunisation certificate which is available from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) 1800 653 809 or the Local Council immunisation service. This form is now a compulsory requirement for entry to school.
