Enrolment for 2019 and 2020 entry

The School and the Office closed at the end of Term 4 and the 2018 school year on Friday 21st December. We reopen for the 2019 school year on Tuesday 29th January 2019 (Years 1 to 6 commence on Thursday 31st January 2019). Any enrolment requests for 2019 entry received while we are closed will be attended to when we reopen. Students cannot commence until enrolment is offered and the completed documentation has been submitted. All required documentation is detailed in the Enrolment section of this website - click here. Please note that original copies of the supporting documentation must be provided and a copy will be taken.

An official Department of Education & Training (DET) enrolment ceiling applies for EHPS, which means that a place is available for students for whom EHPS is their neighbourhood school. A student's neighbourhood school is the government school that is closest in a straight line from the student's permanent residential address to the school. If EHPS is not your neighbourhood school, enrolment is at the discretion of our Principal in accordance with our enrolment policy. To determine your eligibility to enrol and availability of a place at EHPS, please contact our Office.

A child must be five years of age by 30th April of the year they start primary school to be eligible for enrolment in a Victorian Government School. Your child must be at school in the year that they turn six years of age (this is the compulsory school starting age). EHPS currently offers four Prep classes each year (approximately 80 children).


If enrolment for entry in 2020 and beyond is required, enrolment will be accepted from the year prior to entry. School tours for 2020 entry will commence in Term 1 2019; announcement of the opening of bookings for tours will be notified on our website. Prep 2020 enrolments can be submitted from the beginning of 2019, and should be lodged by Friday 31st May 2019. For entry to Years 1 to 6 in 2020 enrolment can be submitted from Term 1 2019.
