Applications for Enrolment of students in Prep (DOC, 319 KB) for 2018 are open . It is important that parents enrol immediately so that the department can arrange for the right number of buildings to be onsite to begin the school year.

All students who live within the school catchment are automatically eligible for enrolment (once proof of residential address is supplied).

For more information on our schools enrolment obligations, please see the School Enrolment Management Plan for Amberley District State School.

Students who live outside the catchment can express an interest in enrolling but will only be enrolled if capacity exists and in order of priority based on the schools Enrolment Management Plan.

Enrolment Management Plan

If your child was born between 1 July 2012 and 30 June 2013 they are eligible for prep in 2018.

View the Department's prep ready reckoner calculator to determine when your child can commence their preparatory year.

Proof of age (birth certificate) is required prior to an enrolment being accepted. Parents also need to provide identifying documents, such as a current driver’s licence or passport.

During term 3 and 4 small group enrolment sessions are held for all new families. During these sessions each students development is individually assessed by staff. In late term 4 the school also provides orientation sessions for students where they spend the morning in a prep class to assist their transition to school. While students are spending time in the prep rooms parents attend an information session and meet key school staff.

Birth Certificates

A Birth Certificate is required for enrolment. The Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages encourages parents to apply for birth certificates early to avoid the back-to-school rush.

To apply for a birth certificate, download an application form from the Department of Justice website or lodge your application at the registry at 110 George Street, Brisbane or at your nearest courthouse.
