Dear parent/guardian,


Welcome to Cranbourne Park Primary School.

Below is an expression of interest form which will start the process for a new enrolment. This form can be used for any year level of enrolment. Please indicate by ticking the relevant box. Each student will need a new enrolment form completed. 

The school will then contact you once these forms have been received. The closing date for application is Friday 28th July 2023. Parents/guardians will be asked to provide required documentation to support the enrolment and dates for prep tours, interviews and transition sessions will then be arranged. 

We expect all students to attend all sessions. All prep students must complete the EYE assessment for enrolment. This will provide us with necessary information on your child’s early development to enable us to plan accordingly. 

If you have any queries please contact the office on 03 5996 1142.
