Enrolment Information


Today’s learners are tomorrow’s leaders.

Starting school is a very important and special time for all students and their families.

We work hard to make sure every student feels welcomed and known.

We want all learners to feel a strong sense of connectedness to the school community even before their first day in the school.

2024 Foundation (Prep) Enrolments

The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Guthrie Street Primary School.

The new timeline will apply for children starting Foundation (Prep) in 2024. All government primary schools will follow the new timeline in 2023 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2024 school year.
