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 morning transition visits prior to commencing school. An information session for parents is also held. The school will inform parents via email of the exact days and times for transition.
