How To Enrol

Thank you for considering to enrol your child at Calingiri Primary School. Our school has a long history, and is a warm and inviting environment where your child can learn and gain new experiences in life.

You need to apply to enrol your children in public school if they are:

  • starting Kindergarten – 4 years old by 30 June the following year
  • starting Pre-primary, the first year of compulsory school – 5 years old by 30 June the following year
  • changing schools.

All children of compulsory school age must be enrolled in school and attend every day – this is the law. In Western Australia, children can start their education in Kindergarten, however compulsory schooling starts the following year in Pre-primary. All children must attend school up until they are 16 years old. Sixteen and 17 year olds must be enrolled in school or a training organisation, be employed or be in a combination of school/training/employment.


Every child from Pre-primary to Year 12 is guaranteed a place at their local public school. To enrol your child at Calingiri Primary School, you can download an Enrollment Form here and then contact us for a tour of the school and to complete your enrollment. We look forward to seeing you soon.
