Our school zone

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

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

The Department provides guidance through the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.

You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.  

We can only accept enrolments where we are your closest school to your residential address.

Kinder to Prep Transition Program

The ‘Step into Prep’ program is a four week program conducted in the Prep classrooms and is designed to help students prepare for school through a series of short educational experiences. The pre-schoolers will participate in developmental activities designed by our prep teachers.

This transition program is free and aims to assist 4 and 5 year old children who will be starting school at Willmott Park in 2022. This school experience is both educational and extremely enjoyable for the children and will help families and children prepare for school.

The Step into Prep’ program is a marvellous opportunity for young children to learn about school provided by the prep teachers at Willmott Park Primary School.

The Step into Prep sessions will run over 2 Friday afternoons from 2pm-3pm on the following dates: Friday November 19th and Friday November 26th.

Step into Prep Update

Dear Prep 2022 Parents and Guardians,

 

Due to the current Government Restrictions and the Department of Education Guidelines, we have unfortunately had to delay Step into Prep until later in the Term.

The new dates for Step into Prep will be Friday the 19th of November 2021 and Friday the 26th of November 2021. How Step into Prep is run will be subject to the Government and Department Guidelines at the time of the transition program. How the transition program will run may change over time as Guidelines are adjusted. Please continue to check your emails as we will communicate closer to the date with all of the relevant information for Step into Prep, including the times and any guidelines we need to put in place.

 

Due to needing to change and reduce the number of sessions of Step into Prep the school will be creating some special transition items that will be shared with you via email.

 

In addition to the Step into Prep program, your child will have the opportunity to meet their classroom teacher towards the end of the year. Our Meet the teacher date is Friday the 10th of December 2021. More information relating to Meet the Teacher will be sent closer to the date and will adhere to the guidelines at the time.

 

Please note, the Step into Prep program and Meet the Teacher dates are subject to change due to Government Restrictions and the Department of Education Guidelines.

 

If you have not already done so, please return the Prep 2022 Information Pack documents as soon as possible. Please refer to the previous email sent to your inbox a few weeks ago.

 

If your circumstances have changed and you are no longer requiring your child to be enrolled at Willmott Park Primary School, please notify the school as soon as possible on 9305 6639.

 

If you have any further questions please contact the office on the above number.

 

Year 7 Transition

Research tells us that a successful transition to secondary school is a key factor in determining whether young people remain engaged in education, complete secondary school and transition into positive career pathways. This period of transition spans Year 4/5 through to Year 9 so it is vital that primary and secondary schools work collaboratively with parents/carers and each other to support transition.
