Prep Enrolments


Information For Prep 2023

 

At Yarra Junction Primary School we welcome new enrolments throughout the year and across all grades.

Choosing a school for your son or daughter can be a confusing process. At Yarra Junction Primary School we understand that for families to make a decison that is the right fit, that they will want to see the learning spaces and specialists classes on offer at our school. This is why we understand that a guided tour is the best way for families to see our school in action. A personal guided tour can be a great way for families to see classes as they are happening, as well as provide an opportunity to ask questions and receive information in context as they walk around each learning area.

The three main way to find out what YJPS has to offer your child:

 

1.    By booking a personalised school tour with our Principal, Lisa Rankin

Email the office at yarra.junction.ps@education.vic.gov.au to make a booking.

 

2.    By attending our Open Afternoon.

Our 'Open Afternoon' is on Thursday 23rd June 2022.

Meet the Principal Lisa Rankin, and other key members of the Yarra Junction Primary School community, and hear about the programs and facilities on offer.

IMMUNISATION HISTORY STATEMENTS


Please note that as of 28 February 2018, an Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register will be the only form of documentation accepted as proof of a child's immunisation status.
Without a statement showing completed immunisation, your child will not be able to be enrolled in school.
Documents provided by GPs or other immunisation providers will no longer be sufficient as a form of evidence.
Medicare will usually automatically send you an Immunisation History Statement when your child turns 5.
