All Government Schools are able to ask for a voluntary contribution of up to $60 per year to assist in the provision of resources that extend the school’s capacity to add value to students’ learning experience.   This voluntary payment is requested from parents towards the cost of materials, services and facilities used by K-10 students in the educational programme.  At Yale Primary School we endeavour to keep all our costs to a minimum.


The Pre-Primary staff consist of fully trained Early Childhood Teachers and Education Assistants.  These staff are trained to provide educational programs aiming to increase your child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical skills within supportive and friendly learning environments.


The following Education Department enrolment dates apply for Pre-Primary. For further information please contact the South Metropolitan Regional Education Office on  08 9311 0500 or the school office on telephone 08 9493 2088.

You need to apply to enrol your children in school for 2019 if they are:

  • starting Kindergarten – 4 years old by 30 June 2019
  • starting Pre-primary, the first year of compulsory school – 5 years old by 30 June 2019
  • starting Year 7, the first year of secondary school
  • changing schools.

You can find out what year your children need to start school by using the school-age calculator.

All children of compulsory school age must be enrolled in school and attend every day – this is the law.  All children must attend school up until they are 16 years old. Sixteen and 17 year olds must be enrolled in school or a training organisation, be employed or be in a combination of school/training/employment.

Immunisation is important

Vaccine preventable diseases, such as measles or mumps, can have serious health consequences for school-aged children and others in the community.

You can help protect your child by ensuring his or her vaccinations are up-to-date.

Your child’s immunisations should be registered with the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).

You need to share your child’s AIR history statement with the school.

The school needs to know which children are not fully immunised for their age as they may be excluded from school during outbreaks of some vaccine preventable diseases.
