West Lakes Shore School is a kind, inclusive and community focused school. We are a zoned primary school that welcomes expressions of interest from all families seeking to secure a place for their child. As a zoned Primary School, priority access is given to families located within the zone and siblings of currently enrolled children. The Department Primary School tools allow you to check your zoned or local school, and when your child is due to start school - please click on the below links for more information.



The school adheres to Department guidelines and local Partnership agreements around enrolment.

All families seeking reception enrolment are required to fill out a 'Reception Registration of Interest' form, including the reasons why you are selecting West Lakes Shore School. This includes families with older students already enrolled at West Lakes Shore School and those in our zone.


Starting Primary School: From 2024, children who turn 5 years old:

  • before 1 May can start school in term 1
  • between 1 May and 31 October can start school in term 3 (mid year intake)
  • after 31 October can start the next year
  • Children who start school at the beginning of the year will complete 4 terms of reception. Children who start school in a mid-year intake will complete 6 terms of reception.

    We aim to ensure families are notified as soon as possible about their child's registration of interest application. Term 1 reception starters have offers for enrolment made in 2 rounds:

  • Round 1 offers for Term 1 starters to local families begin in August the year prior to start. We also confirm non-local applicants who have automatic entry in this round (applications with siblings already attending West Lakes Shore School).
  • Round 2 offers for Term 1 starters to non-local families begin in September the year prior to start, if places are available.
  • For Term 3 starters, offers of enrolment will be made at the beginning of Term 1 of the year of start (eg: T1 2025 for a T3 2025 start)

  • For all other year level enrolment enquiries (Year 1 - 6) please fill out the 'Expression of Interest - Transfer from another school' form and send it via email to the address listed below.
