2024 Prep Enrolment Information

The enrolment process for Prep 2024 at Lyndhurst Primary School, will start in May 2023.


Department of Education Enrolment Policy

DET has changed the way in which school zones operate in Victoria. All government schools in Victoria now have an enrolment zone. To find out if you are in the Lyndhurst Primary School Enrolment Zone, or to find out which school is your neighbourhood school, go to findmyschool.vic.gov.au and enter your address. The site operates for Primary and Secondary enrolment.


Please note that these changes to the school zone do not affect any of our existing students or their siblings.


Lyndhurst Primary School Enrolment processes:

Due to pressure for enrolment and anticipated growth, only families within our school zone will be initially offered enrolment through the enrolment process.


Families outside of our enrolment zone may submit an Expression of Interest. However, an offer of enrolment will only be made if there is available capacity. An offer on enrolment may be made after the closure of confirmations on Friday 1st September and these offers will be made on the basis of the DET Placement Policy.

Prep Transition 2024

Dear Prep families for 2024,


We are very excited to welcome you to our school and look forward to getting to know you and your little learners this year in preparation for Prep 2024.


Transition is a vital part of making your child feel safe and familiar with their new learning environment. This year we are trialling a new program that will allow your child more opportunities to experience learning at Lyndhurst.


Our transition program will consist of:

  • 3 x Small group morning sessions (one morning a week over a duration of three weeks, where your child will investigate alongside our current prep students.)

  • 2x Whole class sessions.

  • 1x Parent Information Session.


In addition, some of our staff will be visiting your Early Learning Setting, to introduce themselves.


More information will be sent to you which will details which transition session you are booked into. We understand that the allocated dates will not suit all families but due to the size of our groups we unfortunately cannot make any changes.


Prep Transition Investigation Groups

Your child will attend on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday weekly.


The sessions will run from 9.15am-10.15 am. These sessions will be small groups of Prep 2023 students investigating with our current Prep students through:

  • The week of Tuesday the 10th of October

  • The week of Tuesday the 17th of October

  • The week of Tuesday the 24th of October


Whole Class Transition Sessions:

  • Tuesday the 28th of November (Afternoon session 2.15pm-3.15pm)

  • Tuesday the 12th of December (Morning session 9.30am-10.30am)


Parent Information Session

  • The week of Tuesday the 24th of October


We look forward to meeting your child and working with you in this exciting transition process.
