Enrol your child/children in a school



You must enrol your child or children in a school as soon as possible. Contact the school you wish your children to attend to get enrolment forms.

You will need to show your travel documents and your child’s immunisation records. Children must have the required immunisations in order to go to school. Bring any school reports and certificates of their previous study.

In Australia, children must attend school from five years of age until they finish Year 10. Young people who have completed Year 10 must participate in full-time education, training or employment, (at least 25 hours per week) or a combination of these activities until they reach 17 years of age.

Intensive English language assistance is available for children who need to learn English.
