For Children Turning 5

Parents should complete a pre-enrolment form as soon as possible so that the school is aware of your intentions to send your child to Outram School.

An appointment will be made with the Principal closer to the time of your child starting school to complete a full enrolment form. At this stage you will be required to present your child’s birth certificate, immunisation record and confirmation of your residential address.

Usual practice has new enrolments attending school for four half days in preparation for beginning school. Upon starting school parents should ensure that pupils have a lunch box, school bag and the necessary stationery. A stationery list will be provided upon enrolment and is available at the school office.
