Prep Enrolments

Parents and guardians are invited at any time during the school year to contact the school in regard to enrolling their child/children in Prep for the following year. 
It is requested that an enrolment interview occurs prior to starting Prep.
Below are listed a number of suggestions and requirements to prepare for your child's entry to school.
  • Make an appointment for an interview
  • Bring the birth certificate/ passport along for verification on the day of the interview. Attend the interview on time
  • Prepare any questions you have in readiness
There will be an opportunity to attend Prep transition mornings held for all students who are enrolling in Prep at Mount Gravatt East State Primary School. Parents are required to stay for these.  Students must be enrolled to attend these sessions.

On the First Day


Bring your child to the Prep classroom.  Move with your child into the class and meet the classroom teacher.  Stay with your child for a settling period.  The teacher will advise you when it is time to go.  Please say goodbye to your child in the normal way and tell them you will return at the end of the day to collect them, then leave the room.  Your child will be cared for by the class teacher in a very special way until you return at the conclusion of the school day.
