Enrolments

23/01/2017
Prep enrolments
Attending Prep is now compulsory 
From 2017, it will be compulsory for all Queensland children to undertake the Prep Year, prior to commencing Year 1.

To minimise disruption to schools and families, the new requirement will not apply to children already enrolled in Year 1 for 2017.

Since Prep started in 2007, there have been noticeable improvements to learning outcomes for children who participate in Prep. The vast majority of Queensland parents already choose to enrol their child in Prep when they reach the eligible age.

Making Prep compulsory ensures all children develop the knowledge and skills provided by the Prep Year that form the foundation for future learning.

For more information refer to the Enrolling page on the Education website.
 
We are taking enrolments for Prep 2017. 
 
If you have a child born between 1 July 2011 and 30 June 2012, or know someone who is needing to enrol for next year, please encourage their parents to contact the office to arrange a prep interview with a member of admin.
 
Prep offers children an effective start to their schooling and provides the foundation for your child's success at school by developing:
  • a positive approach to learning
  • independence and confidence
  • thinking and problem-solving skills
  • language skills
  • early literacy and numeracy
  • physical abilities, including gross and fine motor skills.
 
A handy Prep ready reckoner is available to help determine when you should enrol.
 
 

The school is also taking enrolments for all classes in 2017. Early enrolment enables the school to plan effectively for classes and staffing prior to the commencement of the school year.

At Deception Bay North State School, we provide a high quality Prep program based on the Australian curriculum that allows every child to be successful to the best of their ability!
