Helpful Tips On Getting Ready For School!

One month before students start we ask that the following has been completed:

  • All necessary forms/paper work finalised (Birth Certificate, Proof of Address (ie: utility account) and Immunisation Certificate will be required)
  • Purchase stationery
  • Purchase school uniform (full details listed below)

New Entrants

New Entrant children all begin their schooling in our Reception Classroom which transitions them into life at Meadowbank School.

Prior to starting school children have two visits which enables both you and your child to become familiar with the class teacher, classroom routines and environment.

Pre-school visits are held on the two Wednesday mornings before your child’s 5th birthday and they start the Monday after their 5th birthday.
