Enrolling your child at Specimen Hill Primary School.  Please contact the school – 54435353 to enquire when our Open Day is.  At our school’s Open Day, our Junior School Councillors conduct tours around the school, information packages are available and you can have a meeting with the Principal/Assistant Principal.  If you are unable to come along to the Open Day, please phone the school to make an appointment to meet with the Principal.
If you decide, Specimen Hill Primary is the school for your family, please complete the enrolment form and return it to the school as soon as possible. 

You also need to provide a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate and an Immunisation Status Certificate (information below) before your child commences.

Your child is then invited to attend the Prep orientation days during October - December.  The Orientation program is optional, but we do encourage you to take this opportunity as it will assist with your child’s transition into school life.  Activities will be designed to help your child feel comfortable about coming to our school, and to meet older students who will become their ‘buddies’ next year.


A request from the Prep Teachers:

Please make sure that your child comes to school with the following:

Always speak positively about school (regardless of your own experiences) as this send a clear and positive message to your children.
If you have any concerns, please see the Principal or Assistant Principal

STARTING SCHOOL – Information from the Education Department.
Starting school is a major milestone for you and your child, and the start of a new phase of life for you both. These pages will help make your child's move from kindergarten and other early childhood services to primary school as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Your child’s first years of school will be exciting and engaging and this information will help you and your child make the most of the experience. There are handy hints and tips about your child’s school journey that are based on suggestions from other families who, like you, want the best for their children. Victorian government schools recognise and value the contribution you and your family make to your child’s education and this information explains how you can stay informed and become involved in your child’s education. 
Preparation for Parents

As part of enrolling in a Victorian government primary school, or transferring between schools, you need to show your child’s immunisation status certificate to the school. Children who are not immunised can still attend school but they will still need to present an immunisation status certificate.
The Child History Statement from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register may be used, but is only valid if it contains the statement ‘this child has received all vaccines required by 5 years of age’.
If an outbreak of an infectious disease occurs at the school, children who have not been immunised will be sent home until the danger has passed.
