Enrolling your Child

Responsible, Inspiring, Strong, Empathetic



Enrolments are now being taken for 2020 Prep

Many families are making Grovedale West Primary School their school of choice and have enjoyed having a personal tour of the school. We encourage families to come along to see the students at work and the school in action. We also value spending time chatting with you about your child and learning about their likes and strengths.
If you would like to secure a place for your child in our Prep Learning Centre, please contact the school for an enrolment package and to arrange a personal tour. (Call the Office on 52414774). Appointments can be arranged to suit your schedule.

Kinderlinks

The 2019 Kinderlinks program for 4 year old Kinder aged children has begun with the children enjoying their school experience.

If your child is in his or her final year of Kindergarten, this is a great program to prepare them for a smooth transition to school. Come along with your child to enjoy Music, Science, and Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden cooking activities in the Prep Learning Centre, and Kid’s Kitchen.  

Contact the school on 52414774 for further information.
