Enrolment Inquiries

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 tool allows you to check your zoned or local school.


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.

Mid-year Reception intake from 2024


From 2024 there will be a mid-year intake into school. From 2024, if your child turns 5 years between 1 May and 31 October, they can start school in either: term 3 of the same year or term 1 the following year. Students enrolled through a mid-year intake will complete 6 terms of reception. Please refer to the Mid Year Intake brochure below for more information

We aim to ensure families are notified as soon as possible about their child's registration of interest. Offers for enrolment are generally made in 2 rounds:

TERM 1 START: Round 1 offers to local families begin in August. We also confirm non-local applicants who have automatic entry in this round (applications with siblings already attending West Lakes Shore School).

TERM 1 START: Round 2 offers to non-local families begin in September, if places are available.

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.

If you have any inquiries or questions please contact our site enrolment officer via E-mail or telephone 8449 7255.
