Starting School

When can I start?

In South Australia, public primary schools have one intake date, this means:

* If your child turns five years before 1 May they can start primary school the first day of term 1 of that year.

* If your child turns five on or after 1 May they can start primary school the first day of term 1 of the following year.

Your child must be at school by their sixth birthday.

Transition

At Prospect Primary School children normally have three transition visits prior to commencing school: a morning, a half day and a full day visit to school. An information session for parents is also held. The school will inform parents in writing of the exact days and times for transition.
