We have approximately 400 students at Ferntree Gully North Primary School. Every child has a place at their local school. www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au lists your closest school once you enter your address.
Families are able to look beyond the area and enrol at other schools if they have room. We draw students from a variety of kinders and day care centres in the area. Each May, in Education Week, we have an open morning for prospective prep families on a Saturday and a school day. Children need to stay engaged in their kinder program so we support families to do that and run our transition program in term 4. Our program does 3 general sessions where we get to know students and at the 4th session children are with their teacher and the class they will be with the following year for a half day visit.
In addition there are transition statements from families and their programs that are passed on to us to help us plan for the following year.
We would love to hear from you at the office if you would like to organise your personalised tour. We run individual tours to ensure prospective families can have all their questions answered and get to know us. Families are often investing in many years of relationships with our school and we highly value our community.
