Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au. Findmyschool hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2020 onwards.
Students residing in our zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. Mentone Park Primary School does not have an enforced enrolment boundary, and we consider all applications whether inside or beyond our neighbourhood zone.
The Department provides guidance through the Enrolment Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations. You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones. If you have a question about school zones call the VSBA Hotline on 1800 896 950 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We invite prospective parents to tour the school and see our classrooms and programs in action. Please contact the school office on 9583 4935, or email us at email@example.com, to arrange a personal tour with our Principal, Mr Cameron Agars.
To start primary school your child must turn five years of age, or older, by 30 April of the year that they will start school. Starting school is a major milestone in your child’s life. It is an exciting and emotional time for both you and your child. The transition can be made smoother through your positive encouragement and partnership with your child’s school. At Mentone Park Primary School we offer a comprehensive transition program to make the transition from Kinder to School as smooth as possible. Together, we can support your child on their learning journey to achieve their potential.
We hope you enjoy reading about our school and look forward to meeting you soon.
