Children who will reach the age of five years on or before 30th April may commence school in January of that year.
Parents are required to complete a Confidential Student Enrolment form prior to their child commencing school. A birth certificate and Immunisation Status certificate is also required for Prep enrolments.
An enrolment form may be obtained from the school office or below.
Confidential InformationIt is most important that your family details given on the Confidential Student Information form be kept up to date. Please notify the school if there are any subsequent changes to this information, e.g. Change of address, telephone number or emergency contact.
It is essential that parents give complete and accurate information to the school. If your child has a medical history of asthma, anaphylaxis, epilepsy, diabetes, allergies etc; the school must be informed of medication prescribed, especially preventative measures.
You can download the Student Medical Details form here. Please fill it in and return it to the office so the school can retain a record of this information.
Emergency ContactPersonal details listed on the family enrolment form have proved extremely important in ensuring that your child is quickly taken care of in the case of illness or an accident.
In situations requiring further care or treatment, the parent and other parent nominated emergency contact person will be contacted immediately.
Camp, Sport and Excursion Funds (CSEF)The Camp, Sport and Excursion Funds (CSEF) is provided by the Government to help meet the educational needs of your children. To be eligible for CSEF, families must have a current Health Care Card. Full details are available from the office.
AmbulanceIf illness or injury is serious and parents or a contact person cannot be located, the child will be conveyed to either a local clinic or casualty section of the Latrobe Regional Hospital.
In an emergency the ambulance is called. Parents are therefore encouraged to be ambulance subscribers. The cost of any ambulance transport required will be the parents’ responsibility.
We welcome, and are most appreciative of, the tremendous contributions made by parents to our school programs. Such involvement assists us in the achievement of many of our academic and social objectives.
Parents support the staff and their children’s education by participating in sporting and cultural activities, assisting in classroom and intervention programs, and processing resources.
Parent Queries Regarding Information or AssistanceParents are welcome to approach the school in relation to any matter of concern. Please come to the office and arrange to see the Principal or Assistant Principal. Parent members of School Council are only too willing to bring any concerns or questions to the attention of a full meeting of the Council. Please make use of your representatives and help keep everyone well informed. We want to know about your views, concerns and ideas.
Naming BelongingsWe ask that your child’s name be clearly marked on all articles that are brought to school, especially coats, windcheaters and jumpers. All clothing that has been unclaimed will be placed in a central position for children and parents to sort through. The lost property area is located outside the Reading Recovery Room. Unclaimed items unable to be used by the school will be donated to charitable organisations at the end of each term.
School Banking The Commonwealth Bank of Victoria operates a service for children’s accounts. School bank day is Tuesday. Students need to hand their bankbooks with deposits into the office. These books are returned to the children on Wednesday or Thursday.
Pick Up and Drop OffAt Liddiard Road Primary School we care for the safety and wellbeing of all our students. Very busy streets surround our school and it is essential that parents observe the parking restrictions when picking up and dropping off children. No Parking is allowed in the school grounds. This area is supervised by staff before and after school.
Please be aware that parking inspectors regularly patrol the area and will post infringement notices on cars parked illegally.
