How to Enrol

When considering enrolling at a school, it is important that you know what the school offers and whether that matches your educational values and beliefs. In order to ensure you know as much as possible about the school, we would recommend you undertake a guided tour of the school with the Principal, where you will be able to see the school in action and ask any questions you may have. You may even like to make a list of the things which are important to you before visiting us.

At the conclusion of the tour, you may elect to pick up an information pack which contains a Parent Handbook, application form and other relevant documents and information. Applications are made directly with the school.

In order to be able to enrol at Mornington Primary School you need to bring the following into the school office:

  • Completed enrolment forms

  • School Entry Immunisation Certificate

If you are interested in enrolling at our school, please complete the Application Form from our office and send to mornington.ps@education.vic.gov.au or drop it in to our office.

An enrolment form will be provided when placement is offered.
