Prep/Foundation enrolment

Starting school is an exciting time for children, parents and carers. We want to help make the enrolment process as easy as possible for you.  Each year, the department releases the Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers, with information packs available from the beginning of Term 2 for students commencing foundation/prep the following year. These information packs, and other important information, can be found on the Enrolling in Foundation (Prep) page of the Victorian Government website.

Our school zone

Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.

Transition from Preschool to Prep, and Grade 6 to Year 7


Newhaven Primary School has well established transition programs in place for students entering and exiting our school.  Strong communication links with our feeder preschools, along with our very successful orientation program for preschool students, ensure a timely and happy transition from preschool to primary school.  Our Grade 6 students participate in a transition and orientation program with Wonthaggi Secondary College each year. This helps prepare students through both social and educational programs for their transition to secondary school.

Moving to primary school is a big step, and we aim to make this as smooth and positive as possible, by providing a Transition Program during October, November and December for preschool students.

We welcome visits to the school—please just contact the school to arrange a time to look around and meet staff.

We take enrolments for the following year at any time, and appreciate receipt of enrolment forms for Prep by September of the year prior to commencement.

To enrol your child, we need a completed Enrolment Form, a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate and Immunisation Certificate.  You are welcome to submit these digitally to our email address, or in hard copy via post or in person.
